GM Liu Dianzhong's Endgame Lectures Chapter 03
Horse Pawn Endgames 04

This is the fourth page of a series of lectures dealing with 1h1p endgames.
1h1p is pit against 1a2e in this page.
Various tactics using the pin and limiting the opponent's king for the win is shown here. The use of the horse is also shown. And please remember the formation in board number two to force a draw.
I have added some footnotes for the beginner to help understand the boards more clearly.
These are also the most fundamental of the horse endgames. They may seem easy, but there are many principles to adhere to. A tiny mistake and a draw could be a loss, or a win would become a draw.
Enjoy!!!
