Knight or 3 Pawns?

  • #21

    on one tournament once i had 4 pawns (h,g,f,d) against knight, there were rooks too and my opponent had one pawn e or f i do not remember. i could not win. once this knight starts jumping all over the board that is worst thing you might get in one chess game...

    I would rather be K with two pawns against K and knight. The reason is, the king and knight cannot win, the best is a draw. But if you have king and two pawns against king and knight you have at least a draw, maybe a win. Earlier, in the game, and/or with more material on the board it might be different, as others have pointed out.

    1.e4 e5 2.Ne2 (Alapin Opening (i play this rarely)) Nf6 3.d4 (if black tries to win an extra pawn it would result in a fast draw) Nxe4 f3 4.Qh4+!? g3 5.Nxg3 Nxg3 6.exd4 (and it's knight vs 3 pawns, but the thing is white is winning with best play (maybe))
