Answer To Online Chess Endgame Puzzle #38

The answer is for black to play B-d5. White is virtually forced to play Kxd5, then black queens his pawn on h1. If white queens his pawn on a8 he loses to K-f2 check.  Any other move by white instead of queening the pawn and black simply picks up the lone white pawn.

Answer To Online Chess Endgame Puzzle #36

The answer is for black to play Q-a1 check. White has two moves, either Q-c3 or K-e3. If he plays   Q-c3, then black plays Q-g1 for checkmate. If white plays, K=e3, then the same Q-g1 move now wins white’s queen.
