K+P vs. everythingBack to problems Paul Valle (20110106 07:44:10) K+P vs. everything Find the shortest win for White: ChessPosition (see diagram)
Josef Riha (20110106 10:33:33) K+P vs. everything 1. Kxe1. Then underpromote the pawn to a knight. Thibault de Vassal (20110106 10:50:10) K+P vs. everything I would say something like 1.Kxe1 Qa1 2.h1N Qa2 3.Ng3 Qa1 4.Ne4 Qa2 5.Nxc5 Qa1 6.Nd7 Qa2 7.Ne5 Qa1 8.Nxc4 Qa2 9.Na5 Qa1 10.Nxb3# The trap would be to take the pawn c4 two times, then it's a (beautiful) draw, right? Very nice problem anyway. Josef Riha (20110106 10:59:55) K+P vs. everything Hello Thibault, the white pawn is on h2, not h7! 1. .. Qa1 2. h3 etc. Thibault de Vassal (20110106 11:59:24) K+P vs. everything Aaaaah... damn, again this optical problem!! Thanks Josef :) So it "may" be mate in 13 moves with two takes in c4 Paul Valle (20110108 01:00:11) K+P vs. everything A gem from 1922 by the Hungarian; Ottó Titusz Bláthy. Does any of your engines find the solution? 1.Kxe1 Qa1 2.h3!! [2.h4?? Qa2 3.h5 Qa1 4.h6 Qa2 5.h7 Qa1 6.h8N Qa2=] 2...Qa2 3.h4 Qa1 4.h5 Qa2 5.h6 Qa1 6.h7 Qa2 7.h8N! [7.h8Q?? Qa1 8.Qg8 Qa2 9.Qxc4 Qa1 10.Qxb3 c4 11.Qa4 b3 12.Qa7 Be7!–+] 7...Qa1 8.Nf7 Qa2 9.Nd8 Qa1 10.Nb7 Qa2 11.Nxc5 Qa1 12.Nd7 Qa2 13.Ne5 Qa1 14.Nxc4 Qa2 15.Na5 Qa1 16.Nxb3# Josef Riha (20110108 01:21:45) K+P vs. everything Yes, Deep Shredder 12, Rybka 4 don't! Thibault de Vassal (20110108 19:58:02) K+P vs. everything Damn... and my count was bad... I was astonished that h4 worked, of course h3 was more beautiful :) Paul Valle (20110108 20:22:50) K+P vs. everything Can you get 2.h4 to work? Thibault de Vassal (20110108 20:39:50) K+P vs. everything Last time yes, today not anymore so... :) Paul Valle (20110108 21:35:14) K+P vs. everything hehe  I also struggled with 2.h4 (first choice of Rybka). Then i finally realized that if a knight starts of on a dark square, by moving it perpetually, it can never get to a light square in even moves, or a dark square in odd moves...
