Chess news and chess trivia blog (c) Alexandra Kosteniuk, 2011

Hello Everybody,

How about a little tricky endgame study for the weekend? Of course if you cannot crack it the solution is very much there in the flashplayer below. But do give yourself some thinking time and calculate all the way. It's a lot of fun. There are not many options for Black. So, go on, White to play and win! Enjoy! Happy weekend.

Hints: Think about waiting moves and zugzwangs!
