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


The conclusion of the game Najdorf – Kotov, Interzonal Tournament, Stockholm, 1948, shows that even the greatest masters are not immune to committing errors in these relatively simple positions. Compared to the previous example, Najdorf has complicated the win by the premature advance of his pawn to g5 and even failed to win the game despite his king being already on the fifth rank!
