Nice endgame study! Couldn't see why 2.Kf4 was no good at first - had to step through the moves to see why it doesn't work.
Thanks for raising this issue, stepen_33.
2. Kf3 was the obvious choice, but it "looks like" 2.Kf4 should work just as well. BUT 2. ... Kf2!, 3. Kg4 Ke3, 4. Kxh4 Kf4 and now the white king is permanently pinned to the h-file, and the game is a draw.
nice and dam easy
Would 2. Kf4 also work?
I'm a little astounded that a player such as yourself with an Online rating of over 2200 can't see the answer to that for himself.
And on top of that, the answer is given by dufferps in the post (#187) immediately above your own !
A draw . . .?
No, White goes on to promote it's pawn, after 6.h4 the white pawn can't be caught !
