    That means you did not grasp the principle at all. Look up a standard endgame book.

    Thank you LaskerFan for the example

    I was just wondering because in the puzzle , It took the same number of the steps for the king to reach b2 either horizantally or vertically.

    where as in your example the principle works perfectly!

    Am I mistaken to think this is a famous reti endgame study? At the very least it's a variation on its idea, that the king can attack and defend at once from opposite sides of the board in a king and pawn endgame under favorable conditions. Easy enough, but still amazing in execution. It's hard to believe that useless king in the corner is the most dominant piece on the board...
