This puzzle celebrates the graduation of level 5 class 2016-17. It is black to move. Analyse the position and decide if you can help black get:
a) A win
b) A draw

There are no points available for this puzzle. The answers will be published next time (probably in September 2017) together with puzzle #323. Have a nice summer vacation!

Puzzle #321 solution:
Facebook puzzle, 2014. The most to the point answer was by Jalen:
a) White is currently trying to end this as a draw. His bishop pair is not allowed to be captured, or it would be a stalemate because the king is blocked by the giant pawn chains. Black is trying to safely promote his pawns without getting rid of the bishops.
