E-book: Pawn Endgames K+3P vs K+2P

 

When pawns are separated by two files and their common square does not comprise the eighth rank, White will even lose in a similar position since the pawns cannot protect each other. The white pawns are again very close to victory since the upper side of their common square touches the eighth rank.
