2007-11-09 10:21:47LaskoVortex1359Is this a tactical problem or a positional one? 
2010-08-16 13:45:55barz1628◄ Position ► 8/p4p2/4pP2/2kn2P1/K5P1/P1p5/1r6/2R1R3 b - - 0 1 
2010-12-18 19:38:04mtracey1533lol thought Rb6 would be mate if I went to a5 
2011-02-07 11:09:27kameleon771414@mtracey: same here :-) but of course you can just capture the pawn on a6

2012-02-24 07:32:04Freeze1544Oh, I am not supposed to want the draw. How about letting me iterate once to gain time to think about it?
