E-book: Knight Endgames N+P vs N


We can easily deduce that the prospects of winning are the slimmer the farther the b-pawn is from the promotion square. However, when the king is far away and the knight passively placed on the rim, the stronger side may win even with the pawn on the third rank. Such an instructive ending occurred in the game Gligoric – F. Olafsson, Candidate’s tournament, 1959.
