Bishop Against Passed Pawns.

It can be hard to stop two passed pawns with a Bishop, as one passed pawn can be sacrificed to allow the other one to escape from the Bishop.

The solution to last Monday’s problem is that White draws with 1. g3+! Ke4 2. Bc2! Qg4+ 3.Kf2! Kf5 4. Rd4+ e4 5. Rxe4 Qxe4 6. g4+! hxg4 7. Kg3 Qxc2 and it is stalemate.

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.
