This one is very difficult.
Although I find it aesthetically pleasing (and I've seen this one before), to be honest these moves for white aren't that hard to find. The real test would be to try to get into this position, and know by heart that it's drawn. But I mean what else are you going to try? Obviously advancing the pawn loses.
Yes but I think it would be more common for people to resign here or to make "the other move" and end up losing anyway.
It would be a lot more difficult if it wasn't the most famous pawn endgame in history.
Most people don't even study the endgame...
And besides I'd never seen it so I posted it. I guess I might as well have posted fools mate or something seeing as it's so easy...
Seeing this one again isn't so bad. It has aesthetic appeal, and like looking yet again at a pic of a pretty girl, it wears well.
We haven't had a "What's your favorite piece thread" for what seems like ages. Have we matured beyond that bit of nonsense finally?
not difficult at all
I'm not a huge endgame fan but have seen this position many times.
I wasn't aware of that, so lucky me! I enjoyed it, thank you AnthonyCG for posting under the form of a puzzle.
If you enjoyed AnthonyCG's share (I always do) on the Reti theme, consider looking at the post on the Reti & Anti-Reti positions.
where is version 4?
