Rook leads, King follows | Cool Chess Puzzle #19 (Josef Hašek)

What do we have here? Just a little endgame magic by the Czech endgame study composer Josef Hašek. This composition’s solution requires a blend of both practical play and creativity. Can you unlock the secret to this composition from the 1950’s, and tame the black queen?

I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who learned how to play from my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.
