I got this first time but went a completely different way:
POOR
POOS
POTS
PITS
PITH
WITH
WICH
RICH

Makes me think there's a shorter path.

Methinks you have problems, dood [dude?], with your spelling.

Whitch wich do yu mien? Informal words [poos] are not usually permitted in these.

A good challenge! Thanks.

I mean 'wich' pronounced 'wik'
See here
http://www.thefreedictionary.com/wich
Also why on earth wouldn't poos be allowed? What do you mean by an informal word? It's in every dictionary and the fact that it would make little kiddies giggle I don't think should make it disallowed.
