The page with 50 exercises has been finalized, and with it my initial 4-step treatment of the endgame 2N vs. pawn. Thus, in addition to last week’s Endgame Column, you will find solutions to the exercises 39-50.
This week’s Endgame Column is about rook vs. pawn. In Sharp Endgames, I have dealt with positions where the White king approaches the Black king and pawn from the side – but this article will focus on positions where the White king attacks the Black pawn from behind.
This week I shall follow up on last week’s column with a knight vs. bishop endgame with focus on the shortest diagonal in front of the pawn. I shall also present a study of my own, with solution to follow next week.
