Pushing the pawn to h7 leads to stalemate. DEFENDING BY JAILING THE OPPOSING KING ON THE ROOK’S FILE Even if the opposing king is in the otherwise ideal position—on the sixth rank ahead of his pawn, the game can often be drawn. Diagram 45 White to move This is a draw, regardless of who is on move. A blockade is successful thanks to Black’s access to the c7 and c8 squares. For example: 1. Ka7 Kc7 2. a6 Kc8 3. Kb6 Kb8 Or with Black on move: 1. Kc7 2. Ka7 If 2. Kb5, 2. Kb7. 2. Kc8 3. a6 Kc7 4. Ka8 Kc8 5.

Kd6 4. Kd4! Kc6 (4. Ke6 5. ) 5. Ke5 Kb6 6. Kd6 Kb7 7. Kc5 Ka6 8. Kc6 Ka7 9. Kxb5 Kb7 10. Kc5 Kc7 11. Kd5 Kb6 12. Ke5 Kb5 13. Kf5 Kxb4 14.

A7 Kc7 stalemate. Diagram 46 You can see that even if the superior side’s king actually occupies the queening square, as long as the defender can get to the seventh or eighth rank of the bishop’s file, it’s a dead draw. Even extra rook pawns don’t help the superior side. Diagram 47 White or Black to move Black draws easily. He keeps White’s king a prisoner on the rook’s file or, if the White king escapes, Black heads for the corner, from which he can’t be pried. Once again, knowing this simple rule makes it possible to stop calculations upon arriving at similar positions.
