E-book: Knight Endgames N+3P vs N+2P

 

When the stronger side has not got connected pawns, a draw is possible even in very unfavourable situations since in addition to the steadfast defence of own pawns there is also a possibility of a counter-attack on the enemy weak points. The point of the defence always consists in preventing the creation of a strong passed pawn. In this regard is very instructive the ending of the game Bruinenberg – Muresan, Thessalonica Olympiad, 1984. Black to move cannot win although the “Encyclopaedia” asserts the opposite!
