Composed Studies E-book: Knight Endgames N vs P


The battle between the knight and a rook’s pawn is the most dramatic. If the knight cannot stop it before the seventh rank, then salvation can only be brought about by setting up an impenetrable barrier as in examples 261 and 268. A very instructive study on the theme was composed by N. Grigoriev in 1932.
