Is this endgame really "easily drawn"?
White is up a pawn, and both Black pawns are weak. Is it possible White could achieve a structure that would allow him to play for a win?
|Dec-24-09|| ||kurtrichards: <White is up a pawn, and both black pawns are weak.> Generally, doubled pawns are weak but for defensive purposes doubled pawns are strong enough to hold any attack by the opposite pawns. In the above game,black has doubled pawns on the g file but they can hold their own against the three pawns of white. The black king can provide help and the black rook can provide help too by just checking the white king.|
|Dec-26-09|| ||AnalyzeThis: I think that Spassky might have tried to play on here, although I'm sure that both players had a deep understanding of the final position.|
