Daily Chess Musing Chess Puzzle Worth Sharing #17

Greetings Chess Players. My name is Chris Torres and this is my daily chess musing for February 2, 2021. 

Back in February of 2017, I posted a nice endgame puzzle taken from one of my online blitz games. This week, a Daily Chess Musings club member sent me an email wondering what the solution was to the puzzle. So, for today’s chess musing, let’s take a look at the position and see if you can find the winning line for black.
