  (1) Posted by Arpad Rusz [Friday, Aug 3, 2007 19:09]  Corrected studies Many masterworks, which now are proved to be incorrect, can be and deserve to be corrected. So you can post here new corrections or cooked studies for which we should find the correct form.

A very nice systematical movement, but with 3 duals. A correction is possible by moving the wK from a1 to e8.

(= 5+3 )
S. and R. Tsurtumia
Krikheli MT 1990, 1st prize
Win
1.Sc5 Ree2 2.Sa4+ Ka1! 3.Be4! Rcd2+ 4.Kc1 Ra2! 5.Sc3 Re1+ 6.Sd1 Rxe4
(= 4+3 )
7.c8R! Ree2 8.g8R! wins
But sadly the Tsurtumia family left us alone with the question how white wins after 7...Rg4. Most probably they overestimated the bad position of the black king but 7...Rg4 8.g8Q Rxg8 9.Rxg8 Re2/Rg2/Rh2 is drawn.
Is it possible to save the end without additional material? The best I found is +wPh3 +bPh4 but it takes some of the fascination. However, then the study works as it should always have.

However, it still can serve as a correction then since the original study was defect. So at least this time we have an useful accidental recomposition. (See more, mainly by me, and an interesting  or not  theory in my thread at chessproblem.net: http://chessproblem.net/viewtopic.php?f=24&t=447)

"Problem" 1959 (no.074)
White to move and draw
1.Sf6+ Kg6 2.Sg4 Qe6 3.Rd3 Qe4+ 4.Kh2 Qe2+ 5.Kh1 Qxg4 6.Rg3 Qxg3 stalemate
John Nunn found: 1...Kg5 wins (cook published in hhdbiii; tablebases confirm it)
Yes, of course you could let the first move away. So my correction might or not have an existence right. Depends on if it can be developed.

Correction by SH
1.Sg4+ Kg6 2.Kxh2 Qe4! 3.Rd3!! Qe2+ 4.Kh1 Qxg4 5.Rg3 Qxg3 stalemate
Sadly I was not able to add a white knight promotion for a correct line.
