Position of the Week
White to play

A position very like this arose in a recent Birmingham League match. White is Dave Thomas of Shirley, Black is Halsowen's Mike Hadley.

If Black moves his knight he loses his last pawn and if he doesn't he can never take white's last pawn without giving stalemate or losing his knight. A draw was agreed. Was this correct?
