N-456 (Serper – Suba, Hastings 1990/91.)

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


When the king of the weaker side cannot simultaneously defend both isolated pawns, the position is usually lost, especially if the counter-play on the enemy pawns comes belatedly. Such a case is shown in the ending of the game Serper – Suba, Hastings, 1990/91.
