    King and Pawn Trickiness!

    What could be more simpler than playing a position with kings and a few pawns scattered about? The pieces can only move one square at a time (okay, two if the pawn is on its original square!). Yet, many endgame experts consider them to be possibly the most difficult of all endgames. This article - King and Pawn Trickiness - demonstrates how a single tempo or king move in the wrong direction can be the difference between win, draw or loss!

    Thanks, interesting page. Probably should be under Coaching Clinic or somewhere under Chess Training though. [agreed and moved - mod]

    “The destructive capacity of the individual, however vicious, is small; of the state, however well-intentioned, almost limitless. Expand the state and that destructive capacity necessarily expands, too, pari passu.”—Paul Johnson, Modern Times, 1983.
