    If I remember correctly, this is a game of Fischer's? Was opponent named Walther or something like that?

    Why can't the B pawn be pushed? Clearly black has to go G3 but then push the A pawn. How can blacks stop that?

    Also, the start with A4, is that the best shot? What about 1 Kb6?

    1... Bc7 2. Kb7 Bd6 - and now, without calculactions (which would in any case be wrong) I would say that white Pawns cannot be moved forward alone without King's help. I would be proud if this evaluation, based on a "feeling" proves correct.

    Have you done an engine analysis?
