Be sure to find the main line in addition to the more prosaic wins- in other words, also find black's best moves, too.

1.Rxb5+ Kxb52.Ne5+ Kc53.Nd7+ Kd44.Nxf8 Ke55.Ng6+ Kf66.Bd3 Bxg47.Kc3 Bf58.Bxf5 Kxf59.Ne7+ Ke410.Ng8 g411.Nf6+ Kf512.Nh5 Kg513.Ng3 Kf414.Nf1 Kf315.a4 Kf216.Nd2 Ke2It's a winning position for white. White should exchange the knight for the black pawn and promote the white pawn. White mustn't let the black king control b7.
The main line is 1.Rb5 Kb5 2.Ne5 Be2!? This provides black the stingiest defense.
1.Rxb5+ Kxb52.Ne5+ Be23.Bxe2+ Ka44.Nd7 Rb8+5.Bb5+ Rxb5+6.Ka2 Rb17.Kxb1 Kxa3
In my opinion the main line is simpler than V-1.
It is harder in terms of imagination, Alena. The stalemate threat forces the solver to find the domination theme that arises after 5.Bb5. For example- you didn't find it until I told you to look for it, so it isn't easier, right?
Really, how many people could imagine that position after 6.Ka2 and understand that the knight dominated the rook that way? How many people might well have gotten there and just figured it was no good for white?
This game took place earlier between Webster University Senior Ray Robson & GM Izoria
This was one of the chess problems in the recent Arves Studies Solving Tournament. How does white win this?
This is from the US Championship: Onischuk v Akobian
This is among the first ending studies I ever encountered as a teenager decades ago. How does white win?
It is a double chess tactic night!
Caruana has just played 64.Bb7??. Can you find the reply Ms. Yifan should have played?
Long time commenter Cortex gave me this puzzle here on Susan's site in 2014 or there about as a challenge.
Yu Yangyi versus Ray Robson (Millionaire Chess 2014)
What can white do with this attack?
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 ]
