Chess Trick #1: Quickly Calculating King vs. Pawn Movements

intermediate
jrobichess Endgame Technique King Pawn

I came across this little tip from Josh Waitzkin's segments on Chessmaster 10 and found it pretty interesting. I had previously calculated every move in my head for end-games, and this will save a fair amount of time. Hope you find it usefull if you haven't come across it yet.
