K+2 Kts vs K = DRAW with correct play by the defender. All the Kts can do is stalemate the lone King. BUT, with a K+P after the King is stalemated the pawn moves while the Kts get repositioned for checkmate. The longest such mate requires 66 moves and in 1992 FIDE abolished all exceptions to the 50 move rule because no one knows any of them including most GMs, at least according to me - and at least one GM named Karpov.
As Botvinnik said in this book, Lilienthal had gotten that endgame 3 times in his career already by that point...and was unable to win it any of those times...
Nimzovitch erroneously traded down into this ending with a K+RP, which loses even if it's on the 6th-rank, but Nimzo didn't know this back in 1913 (I wonder if anyone else did)
Lilienthal may have been a slow learner in the endgame, but he had an even record with Capablanca: +1 -0 =2
I've never even seen it occur once...hard to believe Andrei had it happen to him three times...
Cool...this is going to help me on the chess tournament.
I'm so pumped up!!!
What about if the black king is for example on h1 the white King is on g3 and the two white knights are on f2 and h3
This position is interesting because White can win even though the black pawn has advanced well beyond the Troitsky line.
White to play and win.
