But .85 is often won in king and pawn since engines don’t understand king and pawn endings

I have checked engine eval but it’s useless

looks like a draw to me but idk

I haven’t looked at it very deep yet

But considering the engine eval

I can guess how it ends

Either A. The engine sucks and will say whites winning in like 3 moves

Or B. White gets a pawn up queen ending that’s drawn with perfect play

if the h pawns were not doubled then draw, but since they are I think white wins.

How about if white has no h pawn. Then can white still win? thats the question I have

White wins

Whites plan is probably to give up e5 for h6 and h7

Black has couple counterideas

A. Go to g6 guard and make your pawn moves last longer

B. Take e5 and try for a passed d pawn

C. Play h5 and h6 to try and stop white

White would be down a pawn without the h pawn lol

He would probably be lucky to draw in that case

White wins?

draw

I think white will win.

Becaz of this stupid forum that I checked, I just blundered after returning here

wouldn't white have the same plan though and I feel its not really like 1 pawn down because black has doubled pawns. I think white should comfortably draw then not be lucky to draw idk

White's better here despite the doubled pawns. White's pieces are more active and open.

hmm
