Fascinating Endgame Study

Fascinating Endgame Study

Aug 5, 2017, 1:50 AM 18

I kinda forgot my promise of posting more "mini-blog" posts over the summer. But I haven't had much content to post, until now... The following endgame study is part of a practice game between nOcHeaTiNgKiD and I against Hanqi in a "team chess" game. What started as a fun training game turned into an amazing endgame study which we spent a long time analyzing in depth all the continuations before consulting with the computer. Enjoy!

Now take a moment (or a few moments) to study the final position. Is white lost like we all thought? Or is there a tricky "save" that white has to stop the queenside pawns and the black king from advancing. Comment your ideas and opinions on the position, including any interesting analysis lines. I will post the solution (if there even is one Smile) in several days. Good luck. Hope you enjoyed the post
