    White to play. Black and White cooperate. White's 3rd move stalemates Black.
    The problem has 4 solutions.

    Try this one: Black to play and what would you play?

    Quite a good puzzle.

    I know this is a miniature and AUW (probably the economy record for AUW), but I really don't like the repeated move 1.Rc7 in three different solutions. 😕
