Mating pattern in the endgame (1)
When reading a review of the book "Endgame virtuoso Anatoly Karpov" a sentence stuck in my mind. The reviewer was astonished how often Karpov worked with mating patterns in his endgames. Since this day I'm searching in each ending for mating patterns. As I didn't collect my endings before I cannot tell seriously if this made me a little better in this part of the game. I liked endings anyway, because they sometimes give me the feeling I could understand what's going on on the chess board.
Enough ranting. Here's what happened in my game some minutes ago in a Slow LIVE Chess Association tournament.
Hope you have fun with this pattern.
