In my studies I came across this puzzle in GM Artur Yusupov's book Build Up Your Chess in Chapter 10. Fair warning; I won't spoil it by providing any hints, but this puzzle is pretty challenging and rated 4 out of 5 on difficulty in the book.  The ideas involved are quite instructive and fascinating. Definitely worth a closer look.  White to move and draw. 

 

In the video I go through all the variations and ideas involved.  I hope you find this as interesting and helpful as I did!  This is perhaps a tougher puzzle than I would usually post but if you do not solve it, hopefully you learn from it as I did.  And if you do manage to get all 4 out of 5 stars then kudos to you!  I wasn't even close.  happy.png
