A Little More Practical, Well, Maybe

Our stroke problems, we like to think, have been challenging, elegant, and charming (if we do say so ourselves), but they have had a certain artificiality in their makeup. So, for a bit of a change, we'd like to present you with one that may be of a somewhat more practical nature. At least, maybe. Or maybe not?

Here's the problem:

BLACK

WHITE
White to Play and Win

W:W7,K9,10,17,18:B1,3,K16,K26,27.

Solution

10-6 3-10---A 18-15 10-19 3. 9-13 1-10 4. 17-14 10-17 13-15 White Wins.

A---1-10 18-15 10-19 9-13 3-10 17-14 10-17 13-14 White wins.

Practical? Realistic? You be the judge, and let us know what you think!
