Creating studies from games (1)

“Surprisingly often I watch sequences of moves in games that do not remind me of anything from my previous chess memory,” writes endgame study composer Steffen Slumstrup Nielsen. In such cases, he will rush over to his chessboard and start thinking about turning it into a study. One way to do this is to strip the position and present the main idea as economically as possible. Slumstrup Nielsen’s description of the process appeared in The Macedonian Problemist.
