Isnt this just something we can look up in the tablebases? I can also create a study like this...

Isn´t it more fun trying to solve it instead of looking it up in a tablebase? I also suspect this study has been composed without use of a tablebase. Where there any good tablebases avaible already in 2009? Cause I think that is something from the last year.

of course they did in 2009, come on, long before that. Your are completely wrong.

Some people are just never happy. You could also just put any position in an engine and get a result. Where's the pleasure in that ? The idea is to solve it for yourself. If you are capable of making up a study like this yourself (and not just look something up in a tablebase or a book) then please share it and make a positive instead of a negative contribution.

What i was trying to say... Maybe it was better to compose a nice intro that leads to this position. The theme in this study also isnt new. I already knew it...
