Endgame Magic #227

One of the most intriguing endgames in Wijk aan Zee occurred in round three between Arjun Erigaisi and Levon Aronian, which ended in a draw. Sagar Shah analysed the endgame in great detail, but maybe you do not know this analysis (yet) or you still want to see what you remember from Sagar's analyses.

The diagram below shows a crucial position from the game. It is Black to move and win. What should Black do?

His books on the endgame - among them "Fundamentals of Chess Endings", co-authored with Frank Lamprecht, that helped to improve Magnus Carlsen's endgame knowledge - and his endgame columns for the ChessCafe website and the ChessBase Magazine helped to establish and to confirm this reputation. Karsten's Fritztrainer DVDs on the endgame are bestsellers. The mathematician with a PhD lives in Hamburg, and for more than 25 years he has been scoring points for the Hamburger Schachklub (HSK) in the Bundesliga.
