Yes! Obviously I\'m wrong thing in our previous original site ... but:  I\'ll repeat all from today (from other our chess site: \'\'kalimera: chess\'\') and there.And there we will move forward with our course! Your friend: Georgi

\'\'Chess for those with a rating below 1900 (every Friday)\'\'  the sequel of a new place:  For starters, I will repeat the answer to our oldest task, because I see that it is impossible to read in our main site for this course. This is the answer to the previous task!  1k6/5ppp/8/8/8/8/PPP5/6K1 w
Yes! I am mistaken! Congratulations kai2011! You are right and now! After a complete analysis absolutely totally convinced that this is only one draw and it is right only if we have a absolutely right game for white. Otherwise it is not white (which have the first move in this case), and black will always win! The white may lose even this game so:  1.a4 h5 2.b4 g5 3.c4 f5 4.a5 h4 5.b5 g4 6.c5 f4! = (0:1). I will specifically analyze for you this position: I this Item: White is on the move  black win!  W: Kg1/a5/b5/c5/ B: Kb8/f4/g4/h4/ 1k6/8/8/PPP5/5ppp/8/8/6K1 w
Solution:  1.b6 Kb7! 2.Kg2 g3! = (0:1) 2.Kf2 f3! and 3...g3! = (0:1) 2.Kh2 h3! and 3...g3! = (0:1) 2.Kf1 h3! 3.Kf2 (or: 3.Kg1 f3! = (0:1)) 3...h2! 4.Kg2 g3 5.Kh1 f3 6.a6+ Kxa6 7.b7 Kxb7 8.c6+ Kc8! 9.c7 f2 10.Kg2 h1=Q+! 11.Kxh1 f1=Qx = (0:1) 2.Kh1 f3! 3.Kh2 (or: 3.Kg1 h3! = (0:1)) 3...f2! 4.Kg2 g3 5.Kf1 h3 6.a6+ Kxa6 7.b7 Kxb7 8.c6+ Kxc6 9.Ke2 h2 = (0:1) 1.a6 Ka7! 2.c6 Kb6 3.Kg2 g3! = (0:1) 3.Kf2 f3! and 4...g3! = (0:1) 3.Kh2 h3! and 4...g3! = (0:1) 3.Kf1 h3! 4.Kf2 (or: 4.Kg1 f3! = (0:1)) 4...h2! 5.Kg2 g3 6.Kh1 f3 7.a6+ Kxa6 8.b7 Kxb7 9.c6+ Kc8! 10.c7 f2 11.Kg2 h1=Q+! 12.Kxh1 f1=Qx = (0:1) 3.Kh1 f3! 4.Kh2 (or: 4.Kg1 h3! = (0:1)) 4...f2! 5.Kg2 g3 6.Kf1 h3 7.a6+ Kxa6 8.b7 Kxb7 9.c6+ Kxc6 10.Ke2 h2 = (0:1) 1.c6 Kc7! 2.a6 Kb6 3.Kg2 g3! = (0:1) 3.Kf2 f3! and 4...g3! = (0:1) 3.Kh2 h3! and 4...g3! = (0:1) 3.Kf1 h3! 4.Kf2 (or: 4.Kg1 f3! = (0:1)) 4...h2! 5.Kg2 g3 6.Kh1 f3 7.a6+ Kxa6 8.b7 Kxb7 9.c6+ Kc8! 10.c7 f2 11.Kg2 h1=Q+! 12.Kxh1 f1=Qx = (0:1) 3.Kh1 f3! 4.Kh2 (or: 4.Kg1 h3! = (0:1)) 4...f2! 5.Kg2 g3 6.Kf1 h3 7.a6+ Kxa6 8.b7 Kxb7 9.c6+ Kxc6 10.Ke2 h2 = (0:1)  We can make this conclusion:  For this conclusion is that we (with whites) need to move forward only 2th pawns first (not 3th pawns)! The best is if our third white pawn standing long 2nd row to be able to move 2 or 1 move according to our need! And the most important thing is to play with the white king: (Kg2) later than 4th a move! For example (a proper game):  1k6/5ppp/8/8/8/8/PPP5/6K1 w
1.a4 h5 (If the blacks king do not want to move!) 2.b4 g5 3.a5!(and if the blacks king do not want to move:) 3...h4 4.Kg2!! 1k6/5p2/8/P5p1/1P5p/8/2P3K1/8 b
(No: 4.b5? g4! =(0:1)) 4...g4! 1k6/5p2/8/P7/1P4pp/8/2P3K1/8 w
No: 4...f5? 5.Kh3!! =(1:0)) 1k6/8/8/P4pp1/1P5p/7K/2P5/8 b
My analys:  5...f4 6.Kg4! 6...Kb7 7.b5! Ka7 8.a6! Kb6! 9.c4! Ka7 10.c5! and 11.b6! = (1:0) 6...Ka7 7.b5! Kb7 9.a6+! 9...Ka7 10.c3!! Kb61 11.c4 Ka7 12.c5 and 13.b6! = (1:0) 9...Kb6 10.c4!! Ka7 11.c5 and 12.b6! = (1:0) 5...Kb7 6.b5 Ka7 7.a6! Kb6! 8.c4!! Ka7 9.c5! f4 10.Kg4! and 11.b6! = (1:0) 5...Ka7 6.b5! Kb7 7.a6+! 7...Kb6 8.c4!! Ka7 9.c5! f4 10.Kg4! and 11.b6! = (1:0) 7...Ka7 8.c3!! Kb6! 9.c4! Ka7 9.c5! f4 10.Kg4! and 11.b6! = (1:0)  5.b5! 1k6/5p2/8/PP6/6pp/8/2P3K1/8 b
5...Kb7 6.b6!! (No: 6.a6+? = (0:1) 6...g3!! 7.Kf3!! 7...Ka6!! (or: 7...Kc6!!) 8.Kg2!! (No: 8.c3? f6! 9.c4 f5 10.c5 Kb7 11.Kg2 f4 = (0:1)) 8...Kb7!! 9.Kf3!! Ka6!! (or: 9...Kc6!!) 10.Kg2!! Kb7!! 11.Kf3!! Ka6!! (or: 7...Kc6!!) = (1/2 : 1/2) 8/5p2/kP6/P7/7p/5Kp1/2P5/8 w
or: 8/5p2/1Pk5/P7/7p/5Kp1/2P5/8 w
 Good luck! And I will expect your answers and your opinions in \\\'\\\'Chess for those with a rating below 1900 (every Friday)\\\'\\\'  our course(3). Let\\\'s remind this new task:  One double pawn and for the whites and for the blacks!  1k6/6pp/6p1/8/8/1P6/PP6/6K1 w
(Here no matter who is on the move! ) Can anyone win or this is only a draw? (This task is not very difficult!) Good luck! Georgi

Of course, that\'s with a proper game! With the right game should always be our first move to be to passed pawn forward! Always you must to play only where you have more pawns! This is so even in the presence of other shapes! But after: 1.Ke2 if the blacks err: 1...a5?! (Correctly is: 1...b5! or: 1...Ke7!) 4k3/1p5p/8/p7/8/8/P3K1PP/8 w
2.a4! Now with one white pawn hold two black pawns. And now the white will win! 4k3/1p5p/8/p7/P7/8/4K1PP/8 b
2...Kd7 3.Kd3! (With the aim to avoid: 3...Kc6 and 4...b5) 8/1p1k3p/8/p7/P7/3K4/6PP/8 b

7.axb5 Kxb5 = (0:1) in 100%. 8/8/8/pk6/3K3p/7P/6P1/8 w
Let\'s see how these things work and for the great masters! This is the game: Veselin Topalov (1:0) Constantin Lupulescu Chess Olympiad (2014 http://www.chesshere.com/pgnviewer/t.gif

Note the absolutely essential for the blacks moves well before that: After: 64...Rd5 = (0:1) in 100% 8/r5p1/2k1Nn1p/pR1r1R1P/P7/KP6/8/8 w

This is your new task:  You already know that this is 100% a draw: (Here no matter who is on the move!) 1k6/ppp5/8/8/8/8/PPP5/1K6 w
But here the whites to move and win in 100%! 8/ppp5/8/PPP5/4k3/8/4K3/8 w
How? This is ypur new task! Good luck! I will expect your answers and your opinions in \'\'Chess for those with a rating below 1900 (every Friday)\'\'  our course(3). Georgi

Yes! I will hold as true this by our friend windmill.Congratulations! kai2011 have writed for the game: Veselin Topalov (1:0) Constantin Lupulescu Chess Olympiad (2014.(After: 64...Rd5 65.Nxg7 (instead: 65.Rbxd5)) I guess this is true (and there is no way to Topalov did not see that), but then it is about a game with a lot of thinking! But he has seen and done rather forced endgame where white will win 100% of the many, many(unnecessary) thinking! On it he has had enough to calculate only six moves ahead and knew that this endgame he will win in 100%. And by good, better not practical to seek and losing precious time! Now , you can still look and how the whites will win in our task and then: 1.b6 !! axb6 (instead: 1...cxb6). Good luck! I will expect your answers and your opinions in \'\'Chess for those with a rating below 1900 (every Friday)\'\'  our course(3). Georgi

Chess for those with a rating below 1900 (every Friday)  This is the answer:  Note:  This task was properly decided by our friend: windmill. Congratulations! If now the blacks were to move, then after: 1...b6  this is only a draw. 8/p1p5/1p6/PPP5/4k3/8/4K3/8 w
But the whites to move and win after: 1.b6! 8/ppp5/1P6/P1P5/4k3/8/4K3/8 b

Chess for those with a rating below 1900 (every Friday)  The new lesson (1):  I myself have a game  similar to this task:  8/pppp4/8/P1PP2k1/1P4n1/3R4/6K1/8 w
Here (I am with the whites.) the whites to move and win: 1.Rg3! (The easiest way!The pawn endgame!) 8/pppp4/8/P1PP2k1/1P4n1/6R1/6K1/8 b
1...Kf5 (or: 1...Kh5) / (If otherwise: 2.Kf3! = (1:0)) 8/pppp4/8/P1PP1k2/1P4n1/6R1/6K1/8 w
2.Rxg4! 8/pppp4/8/P1PP1k2/1P4R1/8/6K1/8 b
2...Kxg4 8/pppp4/8/P1PP4/1P4k1/8/6K1/8 w
3.b5! 8/pppp4/8/PPPP4/6k1/8/6K1/8 b
Now the black to move but the white will win! 3...Kf5 (This is the best! I am sure that for you will not be difficult to find how the whites will win in another move of the blacks!If you want to progress you have to do this(The like it is in our lesson (2)). These are typical endgames and similar other endgames there are many  so you have to comprehend this lesson by a yourself analysis.) 8/pppp4/8/PPPP1k2/8/8/6K1/8 w
Now no: 4.b6? cxb6! = (0:1) And now no: 4.c6? dxc6! = (0:1) But now after: 4.d6!!(or:4.a6!!=(1:0))=(1:0) 8/pppp4/3P4/PPP2k2/8/8/6K1/8 b
if: 4...Ke6 8/pppp4/3Pk3/PPP5/8/8/6K1/8 w

(if: 6...axb6 7.a7 etc = (1:0)) So after I knew the decision of the similar task to this my game and it was easy for me to find such a solution in the (new task) that my game. I hope that you yourself will easily cope and with the mirror solution with: 4.a6!! = (1:0), instead of: 4.d6!! = (1:0). 8/pppp4/P7/1PPP1k2/8/8/6K1/8 b
If you want to progress you have to do this(The like it is in our lesson (2)). These are typical endgames and similar other endgames there are many  so you have to comprehend this lesson by a yourself analysis. Good luck!

Chess for those with a rating below 1900 (every Friday)  The new lesson (2):  4k3/ppp2ppp/8/8/8/8/PP2PPPP/4K3 w
This is 100% a draw with a proper game on both sides (Here no matter who is on the move!).  But here white to move and will win: 8/7p/1p1k2p1/p1p2p2/8/1P2P2P/P3KPP1/8 w
If the blacks to move this is a draw after: 1...b5! 8/7p/3k2p1/ppp2p2/8/1P2P2P/P3KPP1/8 w
But if the whites to move, after: 1.a4!! and the whites will win as one white pawn holds 2 black pawns and thus balance the game now is strongly violated. 8/7p/1p1k2p1/p1p2p2/P7/1P2P2P/4KPP1/8 b

Here I will leave you alone to analyze how the white will win with a proper game. If you want to progress you have to do this(The like it is in our lesson (1)). These are typical endgames and similar other endgames there are many  so you have to comprehend this lesson by a yourself analysis. However, if you do not understand something then you must to ask it boldly! However I will help you a bit: easiest is if you play with the whites (f2f3) and then (e3e4). The proper game is that you must to play with your passed pawn! The black king will have to chase that passed the whites pawn \'\'e\'\' and then the white king will destroy and both black pawns on the flanks of the queen. Remember that if the blacks (sooner or later) play : (g6g5), the whites (you) must respond with: (g2g4). Good luck!
