2014-09-30 22:25:43Holy1016After staring at it for several minutes, I got the right solution, which I had had a hunch about from the start. But I still can't see what this move accomplishes. Both 2. Kb2 and 2. Kd2 seem to be acceptable replies for White. What does Black do in those 
2014-10-01 16:03:35nune1565@Holy, after Kb2 or Kd2, black just liquidates to an easily winning pawn ending: Qxc3+ Kxc3 Bxb3 Kxb3 Kh5, and white's king is too far away.
