Rule of the Square

The Square Rule is a simple rule, of great relevance in the endings in which a pawn advances towards its coronation square and the king away from his rival tries to prevent it. The rule of the square allows us to avoid counting the times one by one, because just by drawing an imaginary square we will know if the king arrives or not in time to stop the pawn. Technically the square is drawn from the square in which the pawn is located to the coronation square, both inclusive and the same number of squares towards its longest side.
