This study by J. Kling from 1852 is given as a win with white to move:
[fen]8/5p2/8/5p2/2k2P2/4P1P1/4K3/8 w - - 0 1[/fen]
I fail to see the win.
Originally posted by Derfel CadarnNo, you can't drop the pawn, the point is to get black to play 2. f6 and then send the king to f3 :
Kf5...and so on
Originally posted by DeepThought1...Kd4 is illegal
1. Kd2 Kd4 2. Kd3 f6 3. Ke2 and for example 3 .... Ke4 4. Kf2 Kd4 5. Kf3 looks more like it. Black can't stop white getting connected pawns through and it should be possible for white to gain a tempo by pushing a pawn at the right time.
