I'm 21 and I've been playing chess for 13 years. I absolutely love it. below are some favorite endgame puzzles.

white: Kd5 Pa6 Pf5
black: Kf4 Pa7 Pf6
white to play and win
white:Kg6 Pf7
Black:Kh1 Re6
white (who is in check) to play and win.
White: Kd8 Ph2 Pb5
Black: Ka7 Pa6 Pb7
white to play and win

White :Kc6 Rd1
Black :Kc8 g2 f2

White to play and draw (this one is pretty famous but i like it anyways.)

aginis: I had the more naive 36. h3+ Kxh3 (Qxh3 Rg6+ Kh5 Qh5#; Kh5 Qh4#) 37. Qg5 +- however black can make white work for the win with the defensive resource 37...Be6 38.Rxe6 Rh8 39.Qf4 Qg7 40.c3 and black can not effectively prevent the mating net Qf3-Re1-Rh1 for example 40...a4 41.Qf3 Qh6 ...

aginis: <once> i was just wondering why Carlsen didn't play Bxc3 over Nxc3 even if he missed the better 38...Ra5

aginis: < Although the initial move is fairly easily to guess, we decided to make this a Saturday Puzzle because 26...Qd5+! is an only-move. To play into 26...Ra8+? 27.Kb2!, or 26...Be6+? 27.d5!, or anything else, would be throwing the win away.> i think black still ...

aginis: 18.Rc6 Re8+ 19.Kd1 Qa5 how to continue?
   Feb-29-08 A Colovic vs W Arencibia Rodriguez, 2004 (replies)
aginis: I liked 32.Qc5+ any 33.exd6+ and white has a very strong attack. most lines i checked lead to mate or huge loss of material.

aginis: looking for some input on the "cancelled" puzzle Spassky vs Beliavsky, 1988 thanks
   Dec-23-07 Spassky vs Beliavsky, 1988 (replies)
aginis: ok so maybe i'm missing something but 25.Qh6 looks very strong to me. white is threatening Nxg6, Rd3-Nf5 and Nf3-Ng5-Qxh7 or some combination thereof. how does black defend all three?
   Dec-21-07 Gipslis vs A Sygulski, 1987 (replies)
aginis: I didn't see the line played but when i looked at the board i saw the B sack as immediately sound because 22.Bxh6 gxh6?? 23.Qd2 (perhaps not as good as Nf6+ followed by Nh4 but easier to spot and analyze) Now if black protects the N then 24.Qxh6 followed by 25.Nf6 is an easy win for
   Jun-17-07 T Rakic vs I Nemet, 1966 (replies)
aginis: i think 23...Rxb2 wins as well (although slowly) 23...Rxb2 24.axb3 (Bh3 Be6 Bxe6 Rxe6 ) Bc5+ 25.Rxc5 Re1+ 26.Bf1 bxc5 and white must lose a piece to free up his position.
   Jun-06-07 Tiviakov vs V Arbakov, 1989 (replies)
aginis: i think what fezzik means is 64.Qe3 Qg4! (nice find marcwordsmith btw) 65.Qe7+ Kg8 66.Qe8+ Kh7 68.Qxf7+ Kh6 69.Qf8+ Kh7 70.Qe7+ Kh6 71.f7 there is no perpetual because white just moves his king to take the 'a' pawn and then marches up the board with his pawns to queen.
