Composed Studies E-book: Pawn Endgames Important Endings K+3P vs K+2P


If in a similar position the white pawns are shifted one rank “up” the board, there are two possible ways of winning. This is demonstrated by a study of G. Neustadtl, 1898. In contrast to the previous example, here the white pawns are nearer to the promotion square which allows a “breakthrough” tactical motif. It is on this idea that the author’s solution is based.
