    This is an important problem.  First, black has the opposition, then white gets it, I didn't know this was possible.

    It's probably better regarded as an example of outflanking.

    I somehow got every move right without having a clue why I was doing them.  I think I understand how zugzwang for black means he/she can't stick near that pawn but that's pretty hard...

    I think I'm missing something but I'm not sure what. Maybe the problem would be more satisfying if it ended with a pawn capture? or a promotion? I mean, if the problem stops here, it could just as easily stop after the very first move. I mean, what's the difference?

    Forking_A

    raswartz, there are probably multiple equally good continuations, TT doesn't do exercises with multiple solutions. The key is to notice that black is in Zugzwang at the end of the exercise. Here is a continuation that should make white's advantage more obvious. There are probably better continuations but...
