E-book: Knight Endgames N+P vs N

 

As in the case with the b-pawn, when the king defends from the rear of the c-pawn, the safer position is with the knight placed towards the centre rather than the rim of the chess-board. Even in the most unfavourable case with the white king on the same side as the black knight, Black draws no matter who has the move!
