    Hi,

    Can somebody please give positions which achieve maximal
    distance to conversion (DTC) for:

    1. KQKR (31 moves);
    2. KRKB (18 moves) - I think 8/8/8/8/8/2R5/8/3K1bk1 is such a position; is this true?
    3. KBBKN (66 moves);
    4. KQRKQ (60 moves);
    5. KQKBB (71 moves).

    Also, for each position please give all the possible key moves
    which achieve the fastest conversion.
    Thanks.
