zugzwang in my game

  • 3 years ago · Quote · #1


    this was the final position in a recent game i played. it's white to move and after a long endgame i managed to create this position where i played black. although the material is almost equal (i am 1 pawn up) there is nothing white can do to avoid losing the knight in the next few moves along with several pawns and the game soon.

    The material is not "almost equal". Being a pawn up in a minor piece endgame is usally a decisive advantage.

    material was equal about 8 moves before this
