Composed Studies E-book: Basic Endings E-book: Knight Endgames N+P vs P


A true “Reti-like” study on the theme of the pawn defence from the rear was composed by the Russian Skril in 1979. At first sight it might appear that is impossible for White to win since the knight defends the pawn from the unfavourable front side and in addition to this the white king is outside the square of the black h-passed pawn.
