The Behting study is sound !!

In november 2011 I showed Behting's study, that has puzzled chessplayers for more than 100 years now.

white to play and draw.

It should be known by now by most chessplayers that the surprising Kc6 draws, but in august 2012, looked into the problem and was asking for "cooks" - people wanting to investigate the problem and potentially show the problem is not sound as Ng7+ might also draw.

But in october, GM John Nunn concluded that the study is correct after all as Ng7+ looses.

Check out the analysis !
