White to play and draw.








Analyse position


1.f3! 1 Kh4 2 2.g4! 3 Kg5 3.Kc2 Kf4 4.Kd3 = Neither king can afford to move away from the opposing pawns to support the advance of his own.

1 Not 1.g3? or 1.f4? as 1...Kg4 then wins.
1 Not 1.Kc2? Kg4 2.Kd3 Kf4 3.Kc2 Ke4 4.Kb3 (or 4.Kd1 d3 5.Kc1 c2 6.Kb2 Kd4 7.g4 Ke4 8.g5 Kf3 9.g6 d2) 4...Kd3 0-1
2 or 1...Kg5 2.g3! = (but not 2.Kc2? Kf4 3.Kd3 Kg3 4.Kc2 Kf2! 0-1)
3 Not 2.Kc2? Kg3 3.Kd3 Kf2 or 2.f4? Kg4 3.g3 Kf5! 4.Kc2 Ke4! 0-1
