Mikhail Mgebrishvili (Georgia)

Win 9/10
This is a version of a 1979 study by the same composer, with a solution in 164 moves. Here the composer claims the longest solution ever to a study - 222 moves. While bK oscillates between g8 and f7 wK repeatedly loses a move by marching to the al corner, there to triangulate and return to g6, every time forcing Bl to use up one of his stock of (playable) P-moves. If the composer's arithmetic is to be trusted, we reach 221...H5 222.gh5 wins, since 222...Rxg7+ 223.Bxg7 is not stalemate, e3 224.fe e4. Observing that after aP and cP moves are exhausted, then when wK returns to h5, then Bl makes his P-move one move earlier (avoiding Kg8?), the alleged arithmetic becomes:
5 x 23 = 115 to exhaust a- and c-pawns.
1 x 22 = Kg6 back to h5 prior to e6-e5
3x21 = to exhaust eP moves
1 x 22 = Kh5 back to g6,
222.Kg6, and 223.gxh5. (Thanks to
David Blundell!)
However, the study is unsound in its
present form. When wK is at a2, for
example, and bK on g8 (not vulnerable to
a g5-g6+!), it is possible for Bl to play
h5;g5,h4;g4,h3; followed by Rh4xg4 etc.
DB confirms this (though with wKc 1),
