fx7165 (post #203) K+P vs K: After 4...Ke8 it's not necessary to play 5 Ke6 as in the solution. You can already play 5 e4 Kd8 6 e5 Ke8 7 Ke6! Kf8 8 Kd7 and White wins!
1. Rxe5 kg7! prevents (2. Bf6+ Kxf6)
Also 1...f6!! or 1...f5! prevents the mate!
First move is necessary to block f5 move...
RxB doesn't work! Thanks for the lesson.
What am I missing? Why not Be4 to start?
@unclekurt- because then black will play f5... so to block f5, Bf6 is necessary... tricky thing...
waste of time
