E-book: Rook and Minor Piece Endgames R+P vs N


When white king is away from his pawn, Black has good chances to draw. First we will check positions where rook defends the pawn from the side. For Black it is best to block the pawn with his king and attack with the knight. Critical is the position with white king on the other side of pawn (V. Kovačević 2004.) where it can participate in defense and allow the rook to activate.
