# much corresponding are squares. also very strange moves that look passive.

ok so i just learned about squares that correspond and it's kinda confusing.

so to feel better about myself, hopefully, you'll also be confused. i've even used the same pawn structure for all of this. you only need to solve the first one.

EDIT always play best move.

1. black to play and draw.

2. white to move and win.

3. black to move and draw.

ok hopefully i didnt mess this up because that would be embarassing.

corresponding squares are squares where if both of you and your opponents are on two corresponding squares you'd rathe ryour opponent to move as he'll be in zugzwang, here is the simplest example"

mutual zugzwang

mutual zugzwang

yes.

although this is simpler.

or maybe this.

if you're black you want it to be whites move but if you're white you want it to be blacks move

Most known example is that first one but the second one is actually more basic lol

Also check that out.

Also check that out.

Computer says it's a draw but i just wanted to show that. Don't focus on blacks only defence
