This weeks study by N.G. Grigoriev is deceptively simple
As always it is White to play and win
It looks easy, hardly worth a study. 1.f4 and White Queens with a check.
Looks deceive. After 1.f4 Kb4 and the Black King can catch the f-pawn.
I then stumbled upon Gary Weaver - virgiltavi RHP 2022
Black played 72...Kf7 and lost. But it can be drawn.
And then I found shouresh - Gajo Richie RHP 2022 (White to move)
White played 1.Ke4 to stop Black playing 1...Kd5 entering the pawn
promotion square and when Black noticed that White promotes with
the all important check they resigned but once again Black had a draw.
Then a selection of Red Hot Pawn positions (4) with one of our players
needlessly taking a Rook only to be checkmated on the very next move.
