Win or Draw ?
if win, who's win ?
The famous endgame study by Reti:
(post #3): http://www.chess.com/forum/view/general/why-the-endgame-is-important
First thoughts: Black wins because White cannot catch the Black pawn.
Second thoughts: It's a draw:
In summary, position drawn.
2. ... Kb6 3. Ke5 h3 4. Kd6 h2 5. c7 h1=Q 6. c8=Q draw.
2. ... Kb6 3. Ke5 Kxc6 4. Kf4 and white catches the black pawn for a draw.
If 3...h2 instead of moving king black wins in my opinion .
I checked that position with Nalimov . With right play of white , black has no chance at winning that . Funny endgame .
3. ... h2 4. c7 Kb7 5. Kd7 and they both promote.
I wonder, did I not give enough links to solutions in my first post, or did I give too many?
too many, but it's always good to see this study.
