Endgame Studies: K+2P v K+P (part 2)

Dec 28, 2011, 7:42 AM |

I am currently reviewing the material in Reuben Fine's Basic Chess Endings. To assist in this study, I will be posting most of the examples in a series.

Where Fine's analysis is inaccurate, I will make a note and include correct lines. I will be posting without further comment or annotation, except for Fine's evaluation symbols, which have been retained.

We continue with Chapter II, Section IV: King and Two Pawns vs. King and Pawn, for anyone who wants to follow along. Diagram numbering follows the McKay edition of 1989.
