    Very informative!  A pair of titled players and and a couple others worked this exact endgame out in skittles during the canadian open.  The exact position occurred during one of the games.  Great lecture!

    GM Melik lectures on two end game principles -

    knight and pawn vs rook and pawn leading to draw -

    keep knight close to king using knight to attack pawn and defend entrance areas

    rook vs pawn end game -

    rook behind pawn best, rook in front next, rook to side - worse.

    thanks,

    7:50 - Is Black really holding when he plays Kd6 when the white king is on Kb6? Instead of playing Rh4 can't white play Rg6 pinning the knight, force the exchange, and then play Kc5? Isn't that winning for white?

    EDIT: No, of course not. Black plays Ke7, gaining opposition with Kd7 if white takes.
