E-book: Knight Endgames N+P vs N


3.4.3. Pawn Far from Promotion Square

363. When pawn is far from the promotion square, the prospects of drawing are, as a rule, very good – especially if the black king and knight actively participate in defence. The possible exceptions may arise only in positions with a rook’s pawn as the knight’s defensive capability is then the weakest. White wins no matter who has the move thanks to the fact that the white knight controls the important square d5!
