Endgame Studies: K+2P v K+P (part 3)

Dec 29, 2011, 12:18 PM |

Continuing with Fine's Basic Chess Endings, today we conclude the section on King and two Pawns vs. King and Pawn. The analyses for three of these positions (Nos. 39b, 41c, and 45a) have been found to be inaccurate, so these are corrected here.

As usual, only the move sequences are posted here. For annotations and comments, follow along in the book.

No. 36


No. 36a (White to move)


No. 36a (Black to move)


No. 36b


No. 36c

No. 37
No. 38 (White to play)
No. 38 (Black to play)
No. 39
No. 39a
Due to the abundance of examples (there would have been 20 if I included them all here), I am splitting this into two posts. The last part should be up this evening.
