This is among the first ending studies I ever encountered as a teenager decades ago. How does white win?
2K5/2P4R/k7/8/8/8/2r4p/8 w - - 0 1
1.Kb8! h1=Q2.Rxh1 Rb2+3.Ka8 Rc24.Rh6+ Ka55.Kb7 Rb2+6.Ka7 Rc27.Rh5+ Kb48.Kb6 Rc49.Rh4 Rxh410.c8=QIt's a winning position for white.
1.Kb8 Rb2+2.Ka8 Rc23.Rh6+ Ka54.Kb7 Rb2+5.Ka7 Rc26.Rh5+ Ka47.Kb6 Rb2+8.Ka6 Rc29.Rh4+ Ka310.Kb6 Rb2+11.Ka5 Rc212.Rh3+ Kb213.Rxh2 Rxh214.c8=QIt's a winning position for white.The puzzle is very instructive and useful.
V2, obviously, is the main line. I have often seen it described as Lasker's Ladder.
Be sure to find the main line in addition to the more prosaic wins- in other words, also find black's best moves, too.
Caruana has just played 64.Bb7??. Can you find the reply Ms. Yifan should have played?
This game took place earlier between Webster University Senior Ray Robson & GM Izoria
Yu Yangyi versus Ray Robson (Millionaire Chess 2014)
This was one of the chess problems in the recent Arves Studies Solving Tournament. How does white win this?
Long time commenter Cortex gave me this puzzle here on Susan's site in 2014 or there about as a challenge.
What can white do with this attack?
It is important that white plays accurately here.
In a chess game, winning opportunities may not come often. And when they do, you must be able to spot it.
what if you do 1. Qb1?? and your opponent does ..c1=Q!! then white is screwed.
For me, this is Rambo Attack Tactic [ 1) R5e8+!! Kh7 2) Qxd2! R8xd2 3) Rexa8 ~ Black resigned 1-0 ]
