In this video, I show an amazing study where you have to win this endgame with only a bishop and a pawn. It is much harder than it looks, so try to calculate as deeply as you can. Be sure to subscribe for more chess content!

Why dont you leave link to the puzzle?
Very cool endgame study.
Also there are other positions where you can set up this pattern. K+ B of wrong color isn't always a draw.
S very instructive technical endgame. I can imagine some good players simply agreeing a draw. It's great how white can squeeze a win out of almost nothing. Thanks for the awesome content, man!
Damn I solved it. Was the first such difficult one.
Damn what an amazing study! According to PDB this was a posthumous publication by Josef Vancura jnr, Ceske Slovo 29/01/1922. (There was also a 1923 publication but that was anticipated by Vancura
Nice. I know the problem to solve is getting the pawn to the top before the king does, but there might be another way. I don’t play chess much, but could you instead have the white king go to the top corner instead? That would block black from making a draw.
Wow, beautiful endgame!
