20. Studies — the beauty of chess composition
This collection of interactive puzzles aims to introduce the concept of a chess study and demonstrate how beautiful chess can be in spite of a limited number of chessmen. A study is a composed puzzle where White is supposed to achieve a win or a draw by making the only right moves. The solution of such a puzzle consists in playing out all the significant moves for both sides until the result becomes obvious in light of well-researched endgame theory. Studies are composed so that each conceptually different defensive line for Black is answered by a different concept in White’s play.
