A previously unreleased endgame problem based on an online game.
Better than a machine
LEVEL: FOR ADVANCED PLAYERS
This is the game 27418 from MiGs, white move 41. MLA at its highest level (Black) will win against our friend boulet (White), but only after 7 long moves (13 half moves).
You, who are more imaginative than a machine, will you able to do it in just 4 moves?
There are several possible solutions.

This problem is based on a situation from the game 26599 (June 2016): ApocalypticA vs. boulet, Belgian daisy, move 85y, turn Black. You can see the complete game on MiGs history. Just create an account and log-in, it’ free! ^^
The two opponents are strong players, but in the heat of the moment, this endgame is not as good as it could. Can you propose a better and shorter end? How many moves to win the game?
