Queening A Pawn

The solution to last Monday’s problem is that White wins easily with almost any move. 1. Kc5 wins easily, for example.

But White played the tempting 1. Ka5 Kxh5 2. Kxa6 Kg4 3. b4 h5 and the win is now not clear.

In chess, you must concentrate to the end.

In this week’s problem, White is faced with the task of trying to queen a pawn.

How does White to play win?

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.
