    White to move and draw. Like a child could solve this one but the point is they said a comp would assume black wins.

    Put the position into your computer and see if it can find a win for black.

    I thought everyone had a computer. Fritz 15 looks like it runs about 60 bucks.

    I have Fritz 12, 15 looks cooler. The elo rating for each phase of the game has me interested.

    If you have a smart phone, 'analyze this' is free. It runs Stockfish. I'm sure there are free engines for whatever computer you use.
