This was the finale of by far the most interesting game I've played here on this account...
good example of a position where a knight and pawn can win against knight. This is normally considered a draw, but sometimes it can be very difficult.
Well, I thought there was some hope with Ne6+ too, but upon further review I've changed my mind. I'm pretty sure the game was already lost for black. Please correct me if I'm wrong.
66... Ne6+ 67. Ke5 Nc7 68. Kf5 b5 69. Ke5 b4 70. Kd6 Ne8+ 71. Nxe8 Kh7 72. Nf6+ Kxh6
Huh, my head...
How come your opponent is only rated in the 1500s ? I've never seen a <1700 play endgames like this.
Probably a damn' dirty cheater.
If you guys were interested, here is another, "more difficult", position of a knight and pawn(s) vs knight. This one of course didn't actually happen, and btw the OP is a very good example of spectacular zugzwang.
White to play and win. This was composed by me hehe.
Which position are you talking about, poison?
nice puzzle random
That Nalimov comes in handy, doesn't it?
yeah of course i didn't get that on my own it's silly haha i was just providing some explaination of it
