    Wait what? Its now blacks move, Surely black can now play Kg3 and win the pawn...?

    {New to the game?}  White simply moves the pawn to h4 & there's no way of catching the white pawn before it promotes!

    You did understand that the white pawn is heading up the board?

    I moved Kf4 on move 2. Same result, right?

    why not f4?

    That's what I wondered at first but if you set the position up & work through it then you'll soon see why 2.Kf4 doesn't work. It enables Black to achieve opposition with the white king on the h-file which White can't counter but 2.Kf3 stops this happening

    I can't see that Black achieves opposition after 2. Kf4. Once White King gets to g4, there's nothing Black can do, as far as I can see. It seems like Kf4 also works?
