Hi, Thibault!

It is very hard! Thanks! :)


Ilmars Cirulis    (2006-12-03 18:54:18)
? too

Hmmm...

Thibault, are you sure that white win? Maybe you misplaced some piece!?

!!

Pawn changed colour!! :D

Now it looks much better! Thanks!



Thibault de Vassal    (2006-12-03 19:39:38)
My fault

Yes, you were right :/ .. Pawn h7 is White, sorry (much easier now :))


Ilmars Cirulis    (2006-12-03 19:45:48)
Beautiful study!!

I like it! :)


Ilmars Cirulis    (2006-12-03 20:17:57)
Nice!!

We must choose - which pawn we will lose:
on h7 or on b4.

If we give away pawn on b4, it's dead draw. Check it! :)

So we must forget about pawn h7.

ok

i'd try the manouvre ne4/ne8+, nd6, nc4 to get rid of the black's knight without going to far from the promoting square of the remaining pawn
