Technique in rook endings III

4/9/2010 – This week too we are serving up some rook endgame knowledge – difficult stuff but very instructive. We have two training questions for you about the position in the diagram: 1. How do you evaluate the position after 104...Kg4? 2. How would you continue as White after 104...Ke4? Take your time and analyse the position thoroughly, preferably using a board and pieces. If your interest has been awakened, you can carry on by answering the questions which we have put on the diagrams on the following page.

1. How do you evaluate the position after 104...Kg4?
2. How would you continue as White after 104...Ke4?




And another three training questions:

Position after 107...Rg2. White has only one winning move. What is it?





Position after 111.Rg6. Black has only one drawing move. Can you find it?





Analysis position after 113...Ra8. Why does 114.f7 not win?
