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

    Nice, but why the puzzle mode? Smile

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

    Yes, I think Shoopi is right  {#emotions_dlg.smile} I was looking for a more difficult puzzle , and here it is , without solution :

    Aquajet17, you showed the main line of the solution !

    Black to play

    How this game will end ?

  • #138

    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

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