Pawn Endgames

Each puzzle has only one solution for each step which doesn't either turn a win into a draw, or a draw into a loss. Try and calculate to the end before making any moves!

(Credit to 'Secrets of Pawn Endings' where a lot of the puzzles were taken from.)

    Nice end game study though most of it was easy but it is essential.  Thank you.

    You get credit if you saw every response, not just played moves one by one ;)

    Scottrf, that's a nice endgame study in the TT exercise you've given a link to. Having the two extra, stopped pawns makes all the difference though!

    theliten, there's an error in your diagram because that position is drawn!

    It should be  4.Kb1  & not Ka1!  Always keep the defending king on one of the two squares in front of the advancing pawn whenever possible, else place it in opposition to the other king.

    Excellent set of endgame studies  Scottrf.  Very instructive - I even succeeded in getting some of them correct !

    In the position reached- black wins. White can draw by repeating.

    How is white going to get a win by repeating positions?

    graven29

    #9 (3rd to last) doesn't make any sense - the white king should go back to e4 on move 7.
