White to Play

Pete Tamburro on

Published in Chess Puzzles

Another knight ending. This one is more challenging, but White does win even though Black threatens perpetual check.


Solution:

From Averbakh’s Chess Endings: Essential Knowledge. 1.Nf6 Na8 2.Nd5 [2.Kxa8 Kc7 draw] 2...Kd7 [2...Kxd5 3.Kxa8 Kc6 4.Kb8] 3.Kb7 Kd8 4.Nb6 Nc7 5.Kc6 and the pawn queens.
