E-book: Knight Endgames N+P vs N

 

Black’s prospects of drawing are even better against the c-pawn on the sixth rank supported by the king. If the black king has been cut off far from the pawn thus being unable to help the knight, the position is lost. But converting advantage into victory is much more difficult! The sensitivity of these positions is best proven by the fact that the outcome of the game in this case depends on who has the move.
