<CBM training: Bodycheck, seventh heaven rooks and racing pawns 19.02.2012 – If you are an ice hockey fan you know exactly what we are talking about. In chess the bodycheck is an important endgame technique which can easily make the difference between a win and a loss. Our ChessBase Magazin columnist Dr Karsten Müller explains this and other very useful strategic concepts in his latest installment of endgames from the Aeroflot Open.

  Whitehat1963: Yes, the last move should be 79. Kc3.

Dec-21-14  siggemannen: Ok, i bite. <Bodycheck!>
Jul-20-15  SpiritedReposte: At first I thought Kd5 was some subtle, only move to win pawn endgame move. But yea I think it just throws away the last pawn and the win.

Lol sometimes you just have to believe your eyes.
