# Thread: A nice endgame puzzle

1. ## A nice endgame puzzle

Hi, I was reading Dvoretsky's Endgame Manual (regarded by many GM's as one of the best endgame books ever printed) and I came across this endgame posistion. White to play and draw, its a nice line . See if any of you can solve it and I'll post the answer tommorow.

2. I've seen this one before, so knew immediately what to do ... yes, its a nice little study!

3. ## Kiriakov Killer

It is nice. I have seen it before but still took me a while to work it out. In return for your kindness, here is one for you to enjoy

White to move and win.
This one comes from GM Petr Kiriakov and at the time (circa 2005), he described it as his favourite study.
I will post the solution on Monday.

I agree with your appraisal of the book (also started it recently, but go very slow as almost every example is very challenging). Some of the puzzles are real brain twisters!

Yeah, I always thought the endgame was boring until I started reading his book, the examples are always interesting , and he explains things very well.

Sorry, but this is the best result I could get. Hopefully some nice moderator will fix it up and tell me how I should have done it in the first place

To do PGN starting from a given position, construct the FEN string for that position (as you did) then put

then the moves

then close the PGN as normal.

(If you're quick about it, you can click edit on your post and check how I have done it.)

PS Nice puzzle.

Thanks Kevin,
Knew there would be an answer, but I should have thought inside the square [] not outside the square
