Game(4) after: 1.Ke2 (Opposition!) etc.  This is the game(3)  if: 30...Kf6 (instead of: 30...Kd6) and after: 31.Kd4 (instead of: 31.b5):  http://www.chesshere.com/pgnviewer/t.gif The conclusion:  After: 1.Ke2 (Opposition!)  This is only a draw!  To be continued!

Note: It is a draw and after any other move of the blacks!  Attention!  For ease I will make known you my trick to get the necessary endgame in our lesson in one game and for we not linger with many separate charts moves. Of course, I will focus only on the most logical option, because you already have studied for the opposition and you do not need a full analysis for this lesson. For this purpose you need to follow the endgame omly after twentyseventh move to the whitess (after: 27.h4). Note:  And here: 1...Ke7 (in the task) = 27...Ke7 (in the game). This is a draw!  Now (for ease of) , here I will give you one after the other 4 pieces games and you will find everything you need for you there in this games:  Game(1):  http://www.chesshere.com/pgnviewer/t.gif

123 kalimera  20141018 08:05:51  
The new lesson:  Today I will continue to show you the method of profit with one more pawn in the endgames with more pawns. You saw (in our forum (109)) that here the whites will win easily: 8/6p1/3k1p2/8/3K4/4PP2/6P1/8 w
Now here (This is similar, but the pawns are final!) the whites on the move and relatively easy they will win and here: 8/7p/3k2p1/8/3K4/5PP1/7P/8 w
How? Like this:  1.Ke4!  (Your king must be as close as possible to the main section of the battle!) 8/7p/3k2p1/8/4K3/5PP1/7P/8 b
1...Ke6 2.f4!  Important rule is to make a passed pawn to win! Always move your pawn passage at the front and always pass by and exchange! Then (It is the best!) cross your endgame in the endgame with 2 pawns against one who already know how you will win! 8/7p/4k1p1/8/4KP2/6P1/7P/8 b
2...Kf6 3.g4!  (Your passed pawn must be supported if (the blacks) the exchange offer (with: (g6g5))  it it up and pass on (with: (f4f5))!) 8/7p/5kp1/8/4KPP1/8/7P/8 b
3...Ke6  The best (in this case for the blacks) defense when you are a pawn less is to keep your pawns as far back (the penultimate row)! 4.h3! (Opposition! The black must retreat!) 8/7p/4k1p1/8/4KPP1/7P/8/8 b
4...Kf7 5.Ke5 (Your king must be as much as possible ahead!) 8/5k1p/6p1/4K3/5PP1/7P/8/8 b
5...Ке7! (Opposition!) 8/4k2p/6p1/4K3/5PP1/7P/8/8 w
 Now (the whites will move):   First, check out this diagram.  Try it yourself to answer (to decide) , but consistently.  Then see what was the original solution to this problem.  And so now:  If you are on the move with the whites pieces, what do you play now? Good luck! Note:  If you do not do this, then here down you can to look how the whites will win in this game!   
124 kalimera  20141018 15:09:25  
This is the answer to our diagram (in our lesson):  Let us first we to recall a simple diagram with (2: 1) pawns (Such endgame you have already have learned!), though they are not the black and the white pawns on vertical \'\'h\'\' in our main / initial task / diagram: 8/4k3/6p1/4K3/5PP1/8/8/8 w
Here the best white\'s move is: 1.g5! (Opposition!)  and the whites will win easily! 8/4k3/6p1/4K1P1/5P2/8/8/8 b
 Note(1): No: 1.f5? gxf5 = Draw! 8/4k3/8/4Kp2/6P1/8/8/8 w
Note(2): After: 1.g5! , if now the whites will must to move  this is only a draw! So in this position: 8/4k1p1/8/4K3/5PP1/8/8/8 w
here you will never play: 1.g5? and after: 1...g6! and this is only a draw! 8/4k3/6p1/4K1P1/5P2/8/8/8 w
  
125 kalimera  20141018 15:21:17  
Read more:  The right is (here): 1.Kf5! 8/4k1p1/8/5K2/5PP1/8/8/8 b
1...Kf7! (Opposition!) 2.Kg5! 8/5kp1/8/6K1/5PP1/8/8/8 b
and if: 2...g6 3.Kh6 8/5k2/6pK/8/5PP1/8/8/8 b

4...Kf5 5.Kg7 8/6K1/6p1/5kP1/5P2/8/8/8 b
5...Kxf4 6.Kxg6 etc = (1:0) 8/8/6K1/6P1/5k2/8/8/8 b
 Let us we now to go back on our original diagram with (3: 2) pawns: So now (I am knowing this for a fact!) you should have guessed that the whites will win after: 1.g5!! (Opposition!) 8/4k2p/6p1/4K1P1/5P2/7P/8/8 b
This our diagram is from the game: Nebojsa Nikcevic  (Last FIDE rating: 2427 (2333 rapid, 2298 blitz)) (1:0) Pablo Salinas Herrera (Last FIDE rating: 2402 (2382 rapid, 2401 blitz)) Chess Olympiad (2014) Enjoy the whole game, make the connection from his debut until endgame and see the answer  how to win this endgame of white! (Here 1.g5!! = 54.g5!!) http://www.chesshere.com/pgnviewer/t.gif Note: After: 60.h5!! and the blacks resign!

The new task:  My friends, you have already learned about this endgame (diagram): 4k3/8/8/1p5p/1P5P/8/8/4K3 w
You know that here (above) if the whites on to move  they will win and if the blacks on to move  they will win. But now in this new task (diagram) what you think for:  a) If the whites will to move  how to complete this game? 4k3/8/1p5p/1p5p/1P5P/1P5P/8/4K3 w
and: b) If the blacks will to move  how to complete this game? 4k3/8/1p5p/1p5p/1P5P/1P5P/8/4K3 b
Good luck!  My friends , I will expect your answers , your opinions and your questions for our new task to next Friday. Good luck! Georgi  
129 kalimera  20141023 15:27:29  
The answer to our task:  a) If the whites will to move  how to complete this game? After: 1.Ke2! (Opposition!) and the whites will win! 4k3/8/1p5p/1p5p/1P5P/1P5P/4K3/8 b
b) If the blacks will to move  how to complete this game? and here similarly after: 1...Ke7! (Opposition!) and the blacks will win! 8/4k3/1p5p/1p5p/1P5P/1P5P/8/4K3 w
Due to the symmetry of the position will not be difficult for you to guess that here which on the move  he will win (even more now that we learned about this position: 4k3/8/8/1p5p/1P5P/8/8/4K3 w
and: 4k3/8/8/1p5p/1P5P/8/8/4K3 b
where which on the move  he will win.) For each case, I will give 3 examples of games just (only) for the whites: Attention!  For ease I will make known you my trick to get the necessary endgame in our lesson in one game and for we not linger with many separate charts moves. Of course, I will focus only on the most logical option, because you already have studied for the opposition and you do not need a full analysis for this lesson. For this purpose you need to follow the endgame only after twentyeighth move to the blacks (after: 28...Ke8). Note:  And here: 1.Ke2! (in the task) = 29.Ke2! (in the game). This is a draw!  Now (for ease of) , here I will give you one after the other 3 pieces games and you will find everything you need for you there in this games:  Game(1):  http://www.chesshere.com/pgnviewer/t.gif

The new lesson:  After this response to our last task, I hope that if you have this position  you can guess immediately that: 3k4/8/8/p5p1/P5P1/P5P1/4K3/8 w
or: 3k4/8/8/p5p1/P5P1/P5P1/4K3/8 b
a) if the whites on the move  it the whites will win after: 1.Kd2!(Opposition!) 3k4/8/8/p5p1/P5P1/P5P1/3K4/8 b
b) if the blacks on the move  it the blacks will win after: 1...Ke8!(Opposition!) 4k3/8/8/p5p1/P5P1/P5P1/4K3/8 w
O.K.?  I hope also that if you have this position  you can guess immediately that (if the whites will move): 8/1p1k4/1P6/2PK4/8/8/8/8 w
the whites will win after: 1.Ke5! 8/1p1k4/1P6/2P1K3/8/8/8/8 b
1...Kc6 2.Kd4! 8/1p6/1Pk5/2P5/3K4/8/8/8 b
2...Kd7 3.Kd5!(Opposition!) 8/1p1k4/1P6/2PK4/8/8/8/8 b
3...Kd8 4.Kd6! (Opposition!) 3k4/1p6/1P1K4/2P5/8/8/8/8 b
4...Kc8 5.Ke7! 2k5/1p2K3/1P6/2P5/8/8/8/8 b
5...Kb8 6.Kd7! 1k6/1p1K4/1P6/2P5/8/8/8/8 b
6...Ka8 7.c6!! k7/1p1K4/1PP5/8/8/8/8/8 b
7...bxc6 8.Kc7! = (1:0) k7/2K5/1Pp5/8/8/8/8/8 b
or: 8.Kxc6 = (1:0) k7/8/1PK5/8/8/8/8/8 b
 Let us now we to consider this endgame: 8/5p2/4k1pp/2p5/2P1PKPP/8/8/8 b
Now (the blacks will move):   First, check out this diagram.  Try it yourself to answer (to decide) , but consistently.  Then see what was the original solution to this problem.  And so now:  If you are on the move with the blacks pieces, what do you play now? Good luck! Note:  If you do not do this, then here down you can to look how the blacks will win in this game!   
133 kalimera  20141024 17:04:59  
This is the answer to our diagram (in our new lesson):  1...g5!! 8/5p2/4k2p/2p3p1/2P1PKPP/8/8/8 w
This diagram (endgame) is from the game: Sam Loyd (0:1) Simon Winawer Paris (1867) Please enjoy the entire game from start to finish (here: 1..g5!! (in the diagram) = 40...g5!! (in the game)): http://www.chesshere.com/pgnviewer/t.gif My short comment only for the endgame:   If: 41.Kg3 Ke5! 8/5p2/7p/2p1k1p1/2P1P1PP/6K1/8/8 w
42.hxg5 hxg5 8/5p2/8/2p1k1p1/2P1P1P1/6K1/8/8 w
43.Kf3 Kd4! = (0:1) 8/5p2/8/2p3p1/2PkP1P1/5K2/8/8 w
  if: 45.gxf5 (instead of: 45.g5 in this game) 8/6K1/8/2p2P2/2P1k3/8/8/8 b
45...Kxf5 etc = (0:1) 8/6K1/8/2p2k2/2P5/8/8/8 w
  after: 44...f5!! and the whites resign in the original game.  Good luck!  
134 kalimera  20141024 17:13:00  
The new task:  The whites on to move and a little later they will win. How? 8/8/8/1p4k1/1P3p2/5K2/6P1/8 w
Good luck!  My friends , I will expect your answers , your opinions and your questions for our new task to next Friday. Good luck! Georgi  
135 kalimera  20141030 14:45:45  
The answer to our task:  1.Ke4! (Only! Everything else gives a draw!) 8/8/8/1p4k1/1P2Kp2/8/6P1/8 b
Note:  The white\'s pawn (g2) is weak and the only way to win for the white is that they to can exchange their pawn (g2) for the black pawn (f4). Naturally is first white initially to be addressed to (b5). 1...Kg4 2.Kd5! (This is the best!) 8/8/8/1p1K4/1P3pk1/8/6P1/8 b
The white\'s plan now includes for the whites victory to lose one move and by the opposition to put the blacks in a position unable to the blacks will defend their pawn (f4). If: 2...Kf5 (Opposition!) 3.Kd4!! (Only! Everything else gives a draw!) 8/8/8/1p3k2/1P1K1p2/8/6P1/8 b
 Note:  No good (This is a mistake!): 3.Kc5? Ke4! 8/8/8/1pK5/1P2kp2/8/6P1/8 w
4.Kxb5 Ke3! 8/8/8/1K6/1P3p2/4k3/6P1/8 w
And this is only a draw!  3...Kg5 4.Ke5 8/8/8/1p2K1k1/1P3p2/8/6P1/8 b
4...Kg4 5.Kf6! etc = (1:0) 8/8/5K2/1p6/1P3pk1/8/6P1/8 b
 Please you to remember this typical way to victory! The rest is easy and I leave it to your own analysis! The whites will win easy!  if: 2...Kh5 (Opposition!) 3.Kc6! (or: 3.Kc5! Kg5! (Opposition!) and now: 4.Kc6! etc.) 8/8/2K5/1p5k/1P3p2/8/6P1/8 b
Note:  Now the move: 3 ... Kg6 (Opposition!) does not work (no good) because the white king takes pawn (b5) and then will be to go back in time and will destroy and pawn (f4).  The rest is easy and I leave it to your own analysis! The whites will win easy!  if: 3...Kg5 4.Kc5! (Opposition!) 8/8/8/1pK3k1/1P3p2/8/6P1/8 b
4...Kh4 5.Kd4! (Opposition!) 8/8/8/1p6/1P1K1p1k/8/6P1/8 b
5...Kg4 6.Ke4! (Opposition!) 8/8/8/1p6/1P2Kpk1/8/6P1/8 b
6...Kg5 7.Ke5! (Opposition!) 8/8/8/1p2K1k1/1P3p2/8/6P1/8 b
7...Kg4 8.Kf6! etc = (1:0) 8/8/5K2/1p6/1P3pk1/8/6P1/8 b
 The rest is easy and I leave it to your own analysis! The whites will win easy!  Or if: 3...Kg4 4.Kd6! 8/8/3K4/1p6/1P3pk1/8/6P1/8 b
4...Kh5 5.Kd5! (Opposition!) 8/8/8/1p1K3k/1P3p2/8/6P1/8 b
5...Kh4 6.Ke6! 8/8/4K3/1p6/1P3p1k/8/6P1/8 b
6...Kg4 7.Kf6! 8/8/5K2/1p6/1P3pk1/8/6P1/8 b
7...Kh4 8.Kf5! 8/8/8/1p3K2/1P3p1k/8/6P1/8 b
8...Kg3 9.Kg5! (Opposition!) 8/8/8/1p4K1/1P3p2/6k1/6P1/8 b
9...f3 10.gxf3 8/8/8/1p4K1/1P6/5Pk1/8/8 b
10...Kxf3 11.Kf5! (Opposition!) 8/8/8/1p3K2/1P6/5k2/8/8 b
Etc. (And so on!) = (1:0).  The rest is very easy and I leave it to your own analysis! The whites will win easy!  Good luck!  
136 kalimera  20141031 08:55:47  
O.K. my friend! Here you must to do the opposition! After: 1...Kb7! (Opposition!) this is only a draw! 8/8/8/6P1/6K1/8/6k1/8 w
Note: In this diagram (The whites on to move!): 8/8/8/5KP1/8/8/6k1/8 w
After only: 1.Kb5! (Opposition!) the whites can to win! 8/8/8/6P1/6K1/8/6k1/8 b
And for the final in this endgame: If the whites will move here  this is a draw! 8/8/8/8/8/5KP1/8/5k2 w
But if the blacks will move here  this is (1:0)! 8/8/8/8/8/5KP1/8/5k2 b
 Good luck!

The new lesson:  Here is an interesting game between two computers with a very instructive endgame: http://www.chesshere.com/pgnviewer/t.gif To be continued!   
138 kalimera  20141031 13:40:07  
Read more:  Continues:  This was the game: Ribka(Computer)(1/2 : 1/2)Stockfish(Computer) (22/09/2014) Incidentally, I am convinced that with a proper game  this endgame can be won by whites, although and very difficult: 8/7p/4k1p1/2R1np2/8/5P2/6PP/6K1 w
I am convinced that the whites will win only if they do not change their rook of the black knight! However, in our lesson today we are interesting only in this endgame: 8/8/3k2p1/5p1p/3K1P1P/6P1/8/8 w
Yes! This is a 100% draw! And here is no matter which one is on the move!  Here are those 3 endgames and they are also 100% а draw! And here is no matter which one is on the move! Here are those: 8/3k4/6p1/3K1p1p/5P1P/6P1/8/8 w
8/8/6p1/3k1p1p/5P1P/3K2P1/8/8 w
8/8/6p1/5p1p/3k1P1P/6P1/3K4/8 w
Please remember them! No victory! However, if we swap our places of the kings: 8/8/3K2p1/5p1p/3k1P1P/6P1/8/8 w
Here, which has the first move  he will win! I will show how to whites winning if they are on the move! 1.Ke6 8/8/4K1p1/5p1p/3k1P1P/6P1/8/8 b

The new task:  Here is an interesting game between two great masters (formerly) with a very instructive endgame: Adolf Anderssen (1/2 : 1/2) Simon Winawer Paris (1878) http://www.chesshere.com/pgnviewer/t.gif The endgame (after: 58.Kd1? Kf3!) in this game is 100% a draw! But... Now in this diagram (task): 8/8/8/8/1P2kp2/P7/2K5/8 w
 Note:  This is the same game: Adolf Anderssen (1/2 : 1/2) Simon Winawer Paris (1878) , but only after: 57...Ke4.  Now here the whites will move and they will win soon! How? Good luck!  My friends , I will expect your answers , your opinions and your questions for our new task to next Friday. Good luck! Georgi

The new lesson:  Remember!This is a draw, no matter who is on the move: 4k3/2p2p2/8/8/8/8/1P4P1/4K3 w
Remember!Here the whites will win, no matter who is on the move! 4k3/2p2p2/8/8/8/8/P6P/4K3 w
It is logical that the white\'s king easily hold the blacks pawns than the black\'s king  the whites pawns! Remember!Here the whites will move and will win (after: 1.Ke2!/1.Kd2!/1.Kf2!/1.g4!): 4k3/2p2p2/8/8/8/8/P5P1/4K3 w
Remember!This is a 100% draw if the blacks will move first (after: 1...Kd7!! Only!): 4k3/2p2p2/8/8/8/8/P5P1/4K3 b
The purpose of black is to stop the passed pawn! Remember!Here the whites will move and will win (after: 1.Ke2!/1.Kd2!/1.Kf2!/1.b4!): 4k3/2p2p2/8/8/8/8/1P5P/4K3 w
Remember!This is a 100% draw if the blacks will move first (after: 1...Ke7!! Only!): 4k3/2p2p2/8/8/8/8/1P5P/4K3 b

 Remember!This is a draw, no matter who is on the move: 7k/8/8/6K1/8/3B4/7P/8 w
The blacks must only to stand in the corner! This color\'s corner is not the color of the white\'s bishop! Remember!Here the whites will win, no matter who is on the move! 7k/8/8/6K1/8/8/7P/2B5 w
This color\'s corner is the color of the white\'s bishop! Remember!This is a draw, no matter who is on the move: k7/8/1K1NN3/8/8/8/8/8 w
Remember!Here the whites will win, no matter who is on the move! k7/8/1K1N4/7p/7N/8/8/8 w
Remember!Here the black\'s pawn is invulnerable! if the whites will move: 1.Ng6! k7/8/1K1N2N1/7p/8/8/8/8 b
