Stockfish vs Stockfish and, if the used engine is ok, you always (9/10) will see the result...

kB5K/2P4B/P4rP1/4r3/2N1n3/1RP4N/3b4/6RQ b - - 0 1 It is a wonderful example (thanks!) to prove that "auto-playing" can be the best way to get such long-string-solution positions. Sting 16++ returns the full solution in 5 second per move (old dual core!) f6f8 h8g7 d2h6 g7h6 e5h5 h6h5 f8f5 h3g5 f5g5 ...

Re: Another "Brain Cramp for SF" position

Hi! 8/p6p/4P2p/p3K1pP/pPk5/p2r2p1/P5R1/8 w - - 0 1 I guess you know the solution, if really not, I'll give it, but maybe some others want to puzzle before too.
