Taking ideas is not a vice, it is a virtue. We have another word for this. It is called learning.
But sharing ideas is an even greater virtue. We have another word for this. It is called teaching.

Some are a bit shorter due to board geometry, but the interesting thing is that the one that took longest to solve was one of the two shortest mates.

White needs to move the king to win the game

Very selective position.
Without tbs so far no problems to choose a King move almost at once only for these ones:
Hiarcs 14, Fritz 14, komodo MCTS and ShashChess 5.0, when its Analysis Contempt is on for White, Black or Both, funny enough fastest with "Both".
None of the "Old Master- Options" need not be on.
