Default Can White Win this? Weiss vs. Chigorin New York 1889

This is a game I discovered in my chess research. This game is not in
any of the chess databases. It was played in a match that was supposed
to be for the World Chess Championship. However, the match was drawn
and therefore no World Champion was declared.

I believe that in the final position in which a draw was agreed,
White, Max Weiss, had a win. It is a simple king and pawn endgame. The
annotator, Steinitz, said nothing about this position.

Needless to say, the full details of this match will be available soon
at a bookstore near you.

So, am I right? If Weiss had played this out, would he have won this
game and have been declared World Chess Champion.

Max Weiss quit chess for a career in banking right after this game and
that is the reason you have never heard of him.

Steinitz's book on this event is one that could do with a reprint.

Yes, but it will take me a long time to get that one done.

At least two days. Possibly even three.
