    53...Kf7 is not good. It must be able to stop the rook pawn from queening. I would keep the King in front of the pawn and don't move the pawn ever. If the white rook pawn attacks the king with h5+ then Kg5 and if it continues with h6 then Kg6 so it can be captured on the 7th rank. Of course if the white king tries to come to the aid of the pawns, it must be checked and if it tries to attack the rook, the rook goes up and down the b-file to get away. Looks like a draw to me.


    P.S. I guess you knew this already, right?

    I think white could win by marching with his king to h8 and then advancing to get another passed pawn. If black plays Kf7 to stop him, then white can win by using the same method he used in the tame.

    In that case, Kh7 should stop it from reaching h8.

    What happened to this Ron? -

    It has been suggested to me that I stop posting on this forum. I now think that is a good idea. SO THIS IS MY LAST POST ON THE CHESS FORUM. No hard feelings on my part. Good luck to all and may the Lord bless you all.

    Oh, I forgot. I'm only human and my memory isn't as good as it used to be. Ha.

    If black's king goes to h7, white can push his pawns to h5 and g5, then win with g6+.

    Do you mean this position after h5?


    if so, then black moves g6 first.

    Maybe he has sided with the beast? Lying and all that?

    It happens.

    My mate Dave had a lovely lass who would do out for him. Turns out she was a he. What a ribbing we gave him(Dave, not the ladyboy).
