When the white king approaches the a-pawn from the kingside and not along the a- b- or c-file, the knight can set up a very resistant barrier. Independently whether the knight be on b6 or c7 (as in example 261).
White king needs three moves to attack the knight. To save the game, black king has to enter the safe rectangle from previous example in three moves!
