Interesting study. It is amazing how complicated is seems, but when you give the logical explanations, it seems so simple.

Thanks.

nice i've only ever seen the 3v3 one that i made a video on but i guess there's lots of different sorts of ones. I'm going to try and get my hands on that endgame book you mentioned sounds good.

moving the b-pawn also breaks the chain:
1.b5 Kg3 2.c5 axb5 3. c6

2.c6 wins here too I think. After 2...bxc6 3.dxc6 d5 4.b5, white gets a passed pawn and after 4...d4 5.b6 d3 6.bxc7 d2, queens the pawn with check and wins! A different king move from black removes this possibility but it's a nice line. :)
