Composed Studies E-book: Pawn Endgames King and three Pawns versus King and three Pawns


When the enemy king is far and there is no possibility of directly attacking its pawns, sometimes the win may be achieved by a pawn sacrifice in order to enable a quicker penetration of the king. A nice example on the theme is shown in a study by G. Mattison, 1929.


I love this Endgame!
