Can black draw this?

This is a position from another posting by Walter Eigenmann.
Some engines play a5 and drew the game versus other engines.
Albert Silver, in a smartly played game, showed a win against the reply a5.

But in some of Walter's games Bc8 was played (Zappa2,
for example). Is there a refutation for Bc8, showing a white win?

Maybe Walter or Albert already have this analysis of Bc8 in there
notes. Thanks.

This one line somehow draws despite, the obvious advantage to white. My guess is that programs do not like Bc8 because of the line given where white takes the h pawn.If anyone spots errors in this line please post.

Does white have an alternative winning plan? If not then I think this would be a good candidate for a "best move" position that is hard for our top programs of today.

Does Zappa2 for example stick with Bc8 or change after a longer think? Any engine play Bc8?

Black has two weaknesses, a6 and d5. Usually this is enough for a win, but white's pawn structure in K-side is spoiled so black has some chances.

So a plan would be: fix the weaknesses, and then try to deprive black of counterplay against your k-side. Then, attack weaknesses one after another. Because there are two of them and they are sufficiently far apart, black will be unable to protect BOTH at some moment and will collapse.

So, you can start by playing b4, so that the pawn on a6 is fixed on a white square. Maybe include Kd4 Kd6.
Then maybe push the h2-pawn to h4.
Then put the a-pawn on a5.

And so on :)


Bxh7 after Kd4 Kd6 is a "move to avoid" IMO.

I don't know about a refutation per se, but I played it out against Rybka, same conditions as in the previous game. This time it was characterized by Black getting into zugzwang a couple of times. Note that this sort of thing is a fairly common theme in same-colored bishop endgames. I owe thanks to a master colleague for teaching me to play these a few years back. I am including a few diagrams to help illustrate the problems Black ends up facing.

Essentially, after Bc8 Black will find a bishop that is not only the classic "bad" bishop but it is also reduced to an extremely passive role. Black will be forced to play some king-side pawn moves, opening up further weaknesses, until he just runs out of moves.

After 9...Ba8

[D]b7/8/3k1p1p/pP1p1B2/P2K1P1P/8/8/8 w - - 1 10

Here the zugzwang is easy to see coming. Black cannot play the loose pawns since they will be immediately captured by the bishop.

After 11...Kd6 comes zugzwang no.1 with 12.f5

[D]b7/8/B2k1p1p/pP1p4/P2K1P1P/8/8/8 w - - 5 12

The here is another crucial point, though Black is clearly lost already.

[D]8/1k6/1P3p1p/K4P2/P2p3P/3B1b2/8/8 b - - 0 17

Black played 17...h5 which loses the h-pawn obviously, and will provide a passed pawn on the opposite wing, however there aren't any real alternatives. If 17...Bd5 or another waiting move, white just plays 18.Kb5 Bc6+ 19.Kc5 Bxa4 20.Be4+ Kb8, and the white king cleans up all the black pawns. If 17...Bc6 then 18.Ba6+ Kb8 19.Kb4 and again white is free to capture all black's pawns.

I don't claim this is proof, merely that it is one way to win it.

Thanks, I'll explore these themes you suggest in greater detail.
Do you have a line where white definitely wins? I realize it is a nice plan and advantage for white but the position has some quirky elements, as you have pointed out. In the meantime I'll attempt to find a winning white line as you suggest(Junior2010 by the way played similarly with the white pawns on a5 and b4 but go no knockout punch).

It is hard to say, because some moves require changes. 4...f6 means I cannot enter e5 if the Black king leaves d6. What does this change? Well, my previous plan to strangle black was a5, b5, Bxb5, and a6 but now he has Kc6 after a5, preventing b5 with no white king penetration in e5, so it is much less obvious. Hence playing b5 instead of a5.

The overall theme is unchanged though. Black has three terrible problems that white will seek to press to convert:

1) the pawn endgame is plain dead, which says a lot. The passed a-pawn would decided it easily with no bishops.

2) The black king and bishop are tied down to passive roles, mostly waiting and praying.

3) Black's d5 pawn. Thanks to it, Black quickly finds its bishop reduced to moving back and forth on two squares, which accelerates the zugzwang.

Thanks. I appreciate the detail you give from your game analysis. It is also nice to observe that our powerful chess engines sometimes miss these deep kinds of analysis.

Yes, this is a pretty clueless engine line. Which one BTW?
