Last puzzle was of easy sort and some of you could solve it convincingly.


Actually, after pawn endgames I had a plan to post rook endgames. But then I have found some knights position and continued with them. Probably, it's time to come back to initial plan. So, from today I start a publishing of rooks positions. At the beginning, it will be R vs. pawn/pawns.

In first position White draws. It is very easy but everyone should know it. For example, recently (on the World Cup-2011, 5th game) young American GM Roy Robson lost analogic position to Bacrot. 

Good luck!
