end game analysis king/pawn vs pawn........where do u postion your king in order to win
beathoven 31 ( +1 | -1 )
depends on where the passed pawn of the opponent is, just block that pawn in it's path and try to wipe it out of the way, then keep your king connected to 'your' passed pawn and promote it to a queen. Then try to get the king of the opponent in the corner. It's not really difficult but when it's a fight against the clock... it is.

50/50 hamez,

It would really help if you can provide the position of the pawn and Kings. (Simple explanation like - Black King at a7 and pawn at a6, White King at c3).

As mentioned above, it depends on the positions. The general rules I use are :

1. If the pawn is at either a or h file and depending King can make to the corner in time, it is a draw.
2. If the attacking King could get an ‘opposition’, it is a win.

In my pretty subjective view, one extra pawn against a lone King is about 50% win and 50% draw.

Basic Concepts A good site explaining the relevant concepts of this type of ending:

migchess20 53 ( +1 | -1 )
Rey y peon contra rey En la posicion siguiente:
Veamos una posicion basica:

Blancas Kg6, g5
Negras Kg8

El blanco gana si juegan primero las negras
Si el blanco Juega el partido es tablas. El rey negro siempre debe ponerse enfrente del otro rey para ganar la oposicion.
Lo importante en finales de peon y rey contra rey es ganar la oposicion, esto se logra cuando entre rey y rey hay un numero impar de casillas para lograr alcanzar el empate.
Cuando se avanza un peon, lo principal es llevar adelante su rey, para desequilibrar el rey contrario.
Muchos saludos

some days ago I wrote about this in another thread ("enough mating material" in this forum).
There is one position with both results (win/draw), the result depends on whose turn it is. The elements of zugzwang/opposition are the basic ones in this endgame.

The Opposed Game This endgame can depend where all pieces are . Both kings and the passed pawn .
However , you know what an opposition is , don't you ? If you don't , you better go find out but at the start , when the pawn is on rank 2 . You must make your at the start , if it is White to move , Black must not be on the opposition. 2 rules :
1. Keep the opposition
2 . Keep your king in front of your pawn .
If your pawn is in front of the opponent king , and it is your move , you are sure for promotion but normally the opponent prevents that by putting his king in front of your pawn . You must be aware that an Rook-pawn cannot be promoted and a
Knight pawn is difficult to promote , a center pawn doesn't need much though but
if you lose the opposition , you will not win regardless on any circumstances whatsoever.
