Here is a study that is an extension of the 'rule of the square', a rule that most advanced beginners have become familiar with in the course of their study. As most begin to realise, their games often find a position which may incorporate all the rules they have read or been told but, just don't seem to fit exactly to the way it was shown to them.
A beautiful endgame study... thank you Phil. Where did you find this example?
Would you believe that I made it up myself?
How about that I slightly altered another composition?
No...........OK then..........It was given to me in a file of problems from GM Petr Kiriakov after an internet lesson by him.
