E-book: Pawn Endgames K+P vs K+P

 

Based on the experience gained from the previous two examples, we can easily deduce that in the diagrammed position White cannot convert his much better king position into victory. J. Kling and B. Horwitz had come to the same conclusion i.e. that this position is drawn, as far back as 1851. After capturing the critical square d7 or f7 and because of a counter-attack, White should not try to push back the black king by advancing his pawn to e6.
