5: " A legendary last piece"
6:Kubbel,1926; "The last drawing chance"

8: " Crazy Desperados"
Thats it, guys. Please feel free to comment on this post and tell me if you like those studys. Should I continue this series?
Cheers, Till :)
very very usefull:)
Thank you Till. They are really challenging, can´t believe I´ve already found solution of first study.
nice set Till!
Cat and Mouse was a lot of fun. Black just wants you to take his Rook so he can stop the game. Yeah Right!
As for the one with 2 dark square Bishops, I had a friend show me that one time. Knowing me I probably would have promoted to a Queen and stop the game without looking at the board first.
5th study: 1.Bc2,Ne4 2.bxe4,Kg8 3.d8=Q,Kf7 4. Qe7,Kg8 5. Qe8 . Am I wrong?
What is a cat and mouse game? Can't we promote the pawn and checkmate?
The rook is always checking you. If you take the rook, it's stalemate.
Yeah, the Kt should be on g4, not h5.
