E-book: Knight Endgames N+2P vs N+P


Black, as a rule, draws easily against a protected passed pawn on the fifth rank even when it is supported by a backward pawn. As in the previous examples, the correct defence is based on two strategic elements. The advance of the passed pawn as well as the capture of the remaining pawn must be prevented by active king and knight play. The following position, with colours reversed, occurred in the game Meulders – Martens, The Netherlands, 1992.
