B+P vs N Basic Motifs E-book: Basic Endings E-book: Minor Piece Endgames


c ) Bishop and c-pawn against Knight

In endgames with the c-pawn on the seventh rank there is almost no difference with regards to similar positions with the b-pawn. The stronger side may, in principle, count on winning only in situations when their king is on the side of the knight, i.e. when the opponent’s king can be cut off from the pawn.
