K+2 Pawns vs K+1 Pawn

May 18, 2014, 10:12 PM |

When my game finishes early in a tournament, I always try to observe the top boards as they finish off their games. I was lucky last Saturday in that my local chess club had all top 4 boards manned by 2000+ rated players. In one of the games, the following endgame was reached. I thought for sure it was a draw and turned away to watch another game. A few minutes later I saw black resigning out of the corner of my eye.

Can you find the win for white?

After the game I asked the white player what had happend and he said this was just an example of the opposition and outflanking used to push the black king where white needed it to go. 
I'm glad I stuck around to watch!
