Many thanks, Bob !

This is funny and instructive :lol: If you look at the time when I posted these positions, you can see - 12:01 AM!

Bob, you didn't have any blinding, I just missed it. My original plan was 18-15, and now if red move King on 22, 32-28 should win, and if red plays 24-28, white come back 15-18 and ... win with move! I just forget that King on 28 still can go back 28-24 :roll:

I find this fact next day in the morning, but decided to leave it this way to see if any objections / complains / crying :lol: come up. Bob, you won this contest, because it seems like you are the only one who came through all positions !

I plan continue to post positions here by 8-10 in one post. But now I want to improve the quality of topic and raise an interest - from 8/10 positions one will be always wrong !
