    I managed to get into this position in a recent game as black. Black to move. I found it amusing anyways.

    Wow, that's a lot of passed pawns. Can you post the game?

    The Black Bishop is on d2. But I just looked up the game, he just "flipped" the diagram to make us look from the Black perspective. The Bishop really is on e7.

    Yes I figured that, that's why I was being a bit silly. I too would like to see the whole game, so off I go there

    Seems to be the wrong game. So what happened, did Black just walk his king around to the queenside and mop up?

    If my opponent hadn't resigned I would've had ten consecutive king moves. Interesting to have the time to do so and have the moves be purposeful ones.

    The bishop is so good, it protect black pawns and allow black king attack,..


    His majesty can also fight !

    The king must put on his hiking boots. He has a long walk ahead of him.

    Don't really agree about the bishop, it's passive and mostly only "good" because the d6 pawn is bad. It's white's knight that had done heroic work, trying to hold off a two pawn deficit.

    unfortunately all that heroism is going to be wasted. Pretty much like the Spartans lost in 300BC. Its a psicological victory for the knight! yay!
