GM Liu Dianzhong's Endgame Lectures Chapter 03
Horse Pawn Endgames 12

This is the twelfth page of a series of pages dealing with 1h1p endgames.
1h1lp is pit against 1h2a2e and 1c2a2e in this page.
Again, this is a continuation of the previous endgames puzzles in the past few lectures.
Again, this may seem easy, but if you do not know how to force a draw should you be on the receiving end, the horse-pawn combination is strong enough to steal a win!
Kungfu endgames...Thy training continues...
PS: It is way past midnight now, and my mind is not clear. I tried to add some of the variations as the book did not give the final kill. If there are mistakes, please tell me.
I have added some footnotes for the beginner to help understand the boards more clearly.
