    That was terrible.

    I'll hazard the question, though:  Why not just pick up the h pawn and advance ours while both kings are up there midway through this?  Seems the time to get the queen and win.  Why work back down just to pick up the back material?  You'll get the queen before black can by far.


    Because the black king will follow the white one, take up position on f7, and white's king is trapped on h7-h8 and no progress can be made.

    At 19 why wouldn't you do Kg7, then get black's h pawn then promote yours?

    I would just offer a draw because I would be too lazy to complete this sequence.

    So would I, even though 6.Kxa4 and push my a-pawn seems a good plan for me.

    Amazing vision.  It's all about White finding a path where he doesn't either stalemate or get boxed in by the opposing King.  If I understood this study I'd never lose a K+P endgame ever again! So that's my chess studying for 2011 sorted out ...
