Galvanize the cheese

I started to follow Blunderprone's method by repeating the levels immediately once I finished a level. I repeated some levels from previous finished circles.

I decided to postpone the effort a little bit. I know It might loose some of its strenght but I'm planning to do some rehersal of the finished levels before I tackle the higher levels. I want to finish first some pawn endings K+P versus K+P and K+2P versus K+P and maintain the knowledge that I build up.

Finished as first (8/10) in my series at my club. Now I have to compete with two others for the best class player in thye lowest class.(ROLF)It is slaughter time. Last time I was butchered. Anyway I stalemated my opponents Q between my rooks and some other pieces. He protected his Q with his Bishop. Bishop was dead duck - a pure loss of a piece. I was greedy and took the wrong rook, trying to kill of the Q. Bad choice! My Q wasn't stronger than his two rooks. I just missed at that moment his dead duck (bishop). I was too greedy. AAAAAAAAAHHHHHHHH.

I came to the conclusion that my kingside attacking skills are very weak. Thank you very much CT-ART for pointing out my weakness. I know it hurts to admit but it also shows that i have to start from scratch again to build up the knowledge to understand these positions. What pîeces play a role in this type of defenses? What squares do I need to make the attack succesfull? etc...
So simplifying the positions to its essentials and trying to identify the basis mechanism could function as a blue print to more complicated poisitions with more defenders and attackers.

Big plans in little....
