That works for the most part. Thanks.

I meant that the subsection, "Puzzles", from the old site is no longer accessible- you are redirected to the "Chess Improvement" section of the new location which only includes puzzles from no earlier than July 1st of this year. I can, of course, still access all the puzzles by using the archive calender from the front page of the old site, but that is less useful for my purposes.

I was going to point out last night that after 6.Rf6, black puts the king on e7 or d7- in range of f8, and the rook ending is a clear draw. Rather than go into great detail in a note, I would, if I were you, just study the ending in a Nalimov Tablebase- especially those lines where black makes errors.
