Composed Studies E-book: Pawn Endgames K+2P vs K+P


The position is won if the white potential passed pawn has not yet reached the fourth rank. In a study by I. Berger (1890), Black to move draws outright with 1..f5+ 2.Kd4 Kd6 since White lacks a reserve pawn move to regain the opposition and occupy the fifth rank. White to move wins due to the reserve move by the g-pawn.
