    Variation of http://www.chess.com/tactics/server?id=290983

    If white plays 4.d4 then 4...f5 wins. http://www.chess.com/tactics/server?id=333615

    This doesn't work if all the pieces are shifted 1 file to the left, as black is left with an h pawn which allows white an easy stalemate with a king on h1.

    It's pretty easy, that's why. The first move just has a couple of possibilities, and after that it's rated maybe 1900.

    This is really cool, imo this falls under principle of two weaknesses, give up one threat to make a concrete other threat

    Are 11 moves really necessary to complete this puzzle? Seems a bit excessive.

    I spent too much time in Chess Mentor lately and to chew through pawn endings took me nearly two days. So this one was easy to solve. I thought it makes difference for solution to see that after Kd4 instead of Kf3 you can play f5 and have to see what happens next. Then I realized that Kf3 is trying to demonstrate another point and that is kings opposition. Really nice those pawn endings and one have to be aware of every single tempi, that matters! :) Details in endings are most important! I just have to bloody improve in those :)

    Yes, 27 seconds and 98.4%! 7 points, getting me one away from my all time high (2434).

    Exactly.  Once you insist on opposition no matter what the moves are flowing on autopilot.

    Missed it, but very nice: sac the pawn, take opposition, outflank, triangulate. K+P 101 comprehensively covered in this one puzzle!

    Wow, 1. Kc6 actually lets black in the square after ...Kxf6 2. d5 Kxg5, and black can draw.  Concreteness is so important in pawn endings.
