Sack of Potatoes post (#28) has Black throwing away the draw on move 8 (Ke7 draws), White throwing away the win on move 10 (Kf6 wins) and Black throwing away the draw on move 11 (Ke8 draws).

If you depend on the defender misplaying the position then even poor moves can work out for the attacker.

In @Sack_o_Potatoes's variation the black king started on e7 instead of e8, so the game is drawn from the start.

Yes, the first error I listed was Black throwing away the draw, not White throwing away the win.  Yet the analysis made it look like a White win.  Either bad analysis or trolling.

Only a person who totally has no idea how to play chess would lose in whites situation

White always wins because the pawn can move two spaces

Well white has to get ahead of the pawn first

Promote to a rook. You are already winning

this draws for black as they get opposition, they just stay in front of the pawn and if whote moves the king, take opposition, repeat, until the king is on the last rank, stalemated or winning white’s pawn. Kd2 or Kf2 getting the king in front of the pawn is winning

Show me a game using my exact moves where this happens. I want to see what you mean.
