Updated every Monday, Wednesday and Friday ... and maybe other days too.
My rather hungover guess is 1.Kf2 Kh2 2.Kf3 Kh3 and then just queen the c pawn - since now it queens with check.
Not any more...
1.Kf2 Kh2 2.Kf3 Kh3 3.Kf4 Kh44.c4 g5+ 5. Ke3! g4 6.c5 g3 7. c6 g2 8. Kf2or 5. - Kh3 and as Tom says White promotes with check and gets Q vs g2 pawn, which is a win.Is that it?Carsten
That's pretty much it, yes. The trick is to march the grand old duke of York up the hill and then march him down again, but by a slightly different route...
Might need to add 1. Kf2 Kh2 2. Kf3 Kh3 3. Kf4 Kh4 4. c4 g5+ 5. Ke3 Kg4 6. Ke4! for completeness.I'm wondering if 5. Ke4 doesn't win as well.ie. 5... g4 6.c5 g3 7. Kf3 Kh3 8. c6 g2 9. c7 g1(Q) 10. c8 (Q)+ and 11. Qh8+ (mate or winning the Q).1. Ke2 is also an alternative first move.Richard
