GM Liu Dianzhong's Endgame Lectures Chapter 03
Horse Pawn Endgames 08

This is the eighth page of a series of pages dealing with 1h1p endgames.
1h1lp is pit against 1h1a and 1h1e in this page.
This is a good place to start learning basic pinning tactics involving the horse. It is also important to remember that 1h is a sw against 1a but most likely a draw against 1e.
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!!!
