's Weekly Study: June 5th 2016



Starting with 2016, we will be posting a Weekly Study, courtesy of Yochanan Afek, Grandmaster for composing endgame studies. These challenging positions are designed to stimulate (and improve upon!) your creativity, depth of calculation, pattern recognition and pure imagination.

The "weekly" study finally shows up, three of them all at once, weeks late.  Don't ever go into a business where you have to be on time, you'd have to fire yourself.

Anyway, nice blocking theme.  It's always gratifying to see the queen "biting on granite," to quote Chernev.
