Next Tournament

Interesting Endgame

White to move. The only way white can win is to trap the knight and win the knight and promote the pawn. Can it be done? My trainer GM Petr Kiriakov gave me this problem and I was allowed to move pieces to solve this. So you could try the same.


  1. Definitly interesting.
    It is beneficial to try to solve it.
    In my oppinion first move is with the K. N will travel to opposite side and it will be trapped there.
    Critical square: e7 & h6.
    See you wednesday...

  2. I ment critical squares are d7 & h6. sorry. Wonder am I on the right track.

  3. White wins in 21. :)
