Passed Pawns Against A Bishop

In this week’s problem, the task of the pawns is to defeat the bishop.

How does White play and win?

In last week’s problem, White can save the game by playing 1. Kxa7 g3 2. Be4 b5 3. Kc6 b4 4. Kc5 b3 5. Kd4 b2 6. Ke3 and the King stops the black pawn from queening on g1.

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.
