White to Play

Pete Tamburro on

Published in Chess Puzzles

This is a position that a player of the white pieces might well agree to a draw in because they “know” that the king will beat the h-pawn to h8 and the king and wrong color squared bishop can’t force him out. HOWEVER, it’s a win! Well worth learning if you can’t figure it out.


1.h4 Kd4 2.h5 Ke5 3.h6 Kf6 4.Bh5 and the king can’t get in.
