    I didn't guess your name.

    But in relation to the question, my answer is in white text below:

    Yes, but only if black's last move was ...e7-e5, allowing taking en passant. Else black queens or is stale-mated.
    There is no cure for leftism. Its infestation of the host mostly diminishes with age except in the most rabid of specimens.

    I take it that you have no sympathy:



    But is White winning after dxe6 fxe6+ ?

    I think the whole point is that this is a retrograde analysis problem, and that Black's last had to be e7-e5.

    Seems to be after Ke4, because Black will be forced to move his b-pawn, so White can play f7, take the P that Black has been forced to move to e5, then go after the bP then win the queening race.
