One repays a teacher poorly if one always remains only a student. And why would you not pluck at my wreath?

Problem of the month: June 2017

A previously unreleased endgame problem.

DON’T DROP THE BALL!

TRAIT : WHITE
NIVEAU : EASY ENOUGH FOR BEGINNERS

Black has just eject in A5 and the situation is tense: both players are one point short of winning! But you play White and you win in two moves. Be careful, don’t miss the right first move, otherwise your opponent will win the game!
