The previous puzzle was an attempt to complicate a puzzle of A.Troizky.

Nice, but why the puzzle mode? Smile
shoopi

Maybe because he considered it a "lighter" puzzle? still it was fun to solve, next time no puzzles modes please Cool

rooperi, why did you give the solution so early (or 'soon', how do you say it?) ? Smile

Black to play

How this game will end ?

Caiello

I don't think black can win, because his king is so far from white's pawns, so white can throw his rook for black's pawn, and then win with his two passers

Sherlock__Holmes

On the 11-th move in Caiello's line black can play stronger and draw - how ?
