Bishop vs. Knight endgame

| 16 | Endgames

I have recently finished a game that concluded in a minor piece (Bishop vs. Knight) endgame. While materially even entering the endgame, the side with the bishop had an advantage due to unbalanced pawn structures on both sides of the board. In this article I will try to show improvements for the side with the bishop and explain how the side with the knight obtained the draw.

I hope you will enjoy the complexity of this endgame as much as I have. I am still uncertain of the result in some lines! Any further ideas or corrections are welcome. (Don't forget to check the variations in the move list.)
