White to Play

Pete Tamburro on

Published in Chess Puzzles

A very instructive study. It seems like the black bishop has ample time to stop the a-pawn and the black king can handle the pawn on the kingside, but White wins this.

This is a Horwitz and Kling study: 1.a5 Bh6 2.g5+ Bxg5 3.Ke4 Bh4 4.Kf3 and the pawn can’t be stopped
