Better King Position in the Endgame

The solution to last Monday’s problem is that Black draws with 1…Bg3! 2. h5 Bf4 3. h6 Kf8 4. h7 Be5 and the pawns are stopped.

In this week’s problem, Black has to play and win.

This is difficult, as White has a protected passed pawn. How does Black manage to overcome this problem?

About Steven Carr

I am 57 years old, and I am trying to improve my standard of play. From 1998 to 2012, I had a break from chess, playing very few games in that period. I now play more competitive chess and I currently have a English grading of 184. I hope to get a grading of over 200 one day. I normally play in the Merseyside League and play Board 1 for Wallasey.
