Looks like an obvious loss ? The king can't block the 2 pawns (the one protecting the other one)
Whit wins h5 Ke6 h6 Kf6 f5! and the king can't advance toward the h pawn.
At first I'm thinking, easy win for white because as the h pawn is rushed down the board black can't stay in it's square after:h5 Ke6h6 Kf6f5and black is in zugzwang.We have to check out black's resources too though, so what if black tries to queen?h5 Kc4h6 a1=Q+Kxa1 Kc3h7And black is too slow.Trying to help the f pawn is slower, and I don't see a stalemate setup for black -- seems like white to move is +/- while black to move is of course -/+White should win :D
