    Baron-Kalish Endgame.

    Due to Popular Demand (from Domagoi) here is my endgame against Kalish.

    White: Kd4, Bc3, Nd3, pg5, p.h2
    Black: Ke7, Bb3, p.a2, p.g6, p.h7.

    I played h4-h5 and undermined black's pawn structure..and eventually won...

    During the game i considered the idea of bringin king to e7 and night to f6 etc..but was scared of letting the black's f pawn move. could i win faster?

    Can white allow exchange of knight vs bishop?
    After that white has to guard f pawn, which rules out attacking h7 pawn.
    If white goes after a pawn, black brings the king to assist f pawn.

    If exchange is not possible, how can white king get to e7?

    That what i was thinking....so i tried h4-h5. Black could not allow white to get his pawn on h6 though.

    Probably. White plays Ne5, that forces black to g8. Then knight goes to d7-f6.
    Black bishop can be scared off by white king.

    After exchange on h5, how did you manage to collect black pawns?

    well f5 pawn was lost by force (after gxh5 kxf5) after this bring my king to h4 and win h5 pawn. Not sure the position was winning though. My main goal was to prevent h6 exchanging my last pawn. I did not see how he could exchange it..but may be with better play he could.

    Overall, the game lasted over 100 moves...and would he not resign immidiately after losing last pawn and wait for me to a) make him sacrifice his piece for g pawn b) win a2 pawn and c) mate him with bishop and knight it would probably last 150 moves or so
