Improve your techniques

White to move. Is White lost here? What should White do? Posted by Picasa

Hi Susan,

I think Kg1 does it; I tried it out on my ancient and battered board at home and it seemed like any way Black commits herself she winds up losing the kingside pawns, then has to move the King, allowing one of the white q-side to promote. If the black pawns and white king were all one rank closer to white's side, black wins (crois-je). Theoretically it seems like an opposition situation. Thanks for all of your fascinating blogs, websites, etc. As a casual amateur lo these 40 years I like the directions you're taking.

Hi Susan, I think Kh1 may be the solution.This is a Zugzwang idea:once the White King has no more square,it's time to sacrifice the Queen pawns. If Black try to win, White has enough game to draw or even to mate.
