    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.

    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.
