what do you think ? Can white win ??? or it is draw ??? (white to move )
1.Kd3! Ke5 2.Kc4 Kd6 3.Kd4 Kc6 4.Ke5 Kd7 5.Kd5 Ke7 6.d3 Kd7 7.d4 and White has permanent control of the opposition and will soon queen the pawn and checkmate quickly.
So you can see on cobra91's moves that the white king moves up in front of the pawn. That is vital. A common mistake amongst beginners in such a position would be to move the pawn. If white starts by moving his pawn he misses the win.
It's a win if the white king can get to c4, d4 or e4, which he can.
