    white parks the K on b2 and pushes the c-pawn.

    1.c3 and it's a draw

    1...bxc3+ is obvious

    1...b3 2.Kc1 and it's a draw again. If black moves the king toward the white King white just pushes the pawn forward.

    3rd one:

    1.Kf2 and draw.
    If black bring the King closer white's King is hovvering between g1 and f2 until black King is on g3. Then white's King goes to h1 draw.

    4th one:

    my suggestion is: 1f8=Q (R) Bxf8 2.Nf7+ Kg8 3.Nh6+ gxh6 4.Kc2 draw???
    It's the wrong bishop for h1!

    No,like swiss said,white pushes the pawn and you'll have to capture it first.


    Then if black king goes to a3,c3 or c1 it's stalemate.

    3rd one
    It's not that simple 1.Kf2 Bh2 now what?


    4th one
    Yes it's the wrong bishop.All 4 have the 'wrong bishop' theme.

    Hope you guys liked them 🙂

    well it's the same as the 2nd one.

    White plays g3 and you basically have the same setup as in puzzle two!!!😉

    Not quite the same.
    After 1.Kf2 Bh2 2.g3 h3 white has just 1 move to keep the draw.

    3.Kf3 with the idea Kg4 and take the pawn.
    If 3...Bg1 then 4.g4 and black is forced to play h2 and the king is in the corner again.
    If 3...Ke6 for example then 4.Kg4 and draw again.

    So, it is easy!!! 😉😀
