I have no idea why the board looks squished. I checked the movie out before I uploaded and it was fine. If you squish your eyeball just right, it'll look normal.

BTW, you can play this against the endgame simulator here:

In fact you should try to solve it before viewing the solution.

I figured that since I posted the position, I ought to post the solution as well because I couldn't solve this one when I first tried it.

That was a fun refresher puzzle. I hadn't dealt with that problem in quite a while, but it was good to see I could remember the solution. Thanks for linking the puzzle, it made me feel more at ease that I correctly remembered the patterns involved.

I agree with you about endgames, more players should study them. I think as you advance you need an even mixture of Opening work, middle game work and endgame work. Each time you go up to the next level, you need to revisit all three sections once again, and so on and so on.

I remembered the h4 idea, but after Bc5 I couldn't find the rest of the maneuver. A good reminder :)

It took me an hour to solve this position. And I am sure after one month I have completely forgotten the answer.
