1. b4-c3 e7-f8 2. c3-b2 f8xb4 3. b2-a1
If 3….b4-e1 4. a1-d4 e1-a5 5. d4-a7 Black cannot both defend piece f4 and stop white from kinging

If 3….b4-a5 4. a1-D4 a5-c7 5. d4-c3 White controls fifth check (a5-e1)

If 3....b4-c5 4. c5-e3 b2-c3 5.e3-b6 c3-a5 6. b6 - d8 h6-g5 7. f4xh6 h4-g3 8. h6-g7 g3-h2 9. G7-h8 h2-g1
Draw imminent as king h8 cannot stop halfway and moving king d8 offers the double row

Aftrer 3...b4-c5 4. a1-b2 is also good, 4…..a3-b4 is futile because of b2-a3

why did you reverse the board? the numbers are on the board for ease of communocation.
on 1.g5-f6 black reply d2-e1 - can you draw here?

I just set out the game on my board... do you want me to adjust

4  
I'll reset for the position you want analysed

Ok Jake, I must admit it is a trickier game.

This was good Jake, where did you get this puzzle.

I think I would have lost this position in a game.

8  
Did someone draw an actual game in this position?
Which player was it?
