Knight vs Bishop endgame New endgame for review.
---
In 12 tournament ( gameknot.com/tournament.pl?t=12&s=1&r=1 ) I played White vs duke, see board #767580
After massive exchange I noticed myself in following position:
--
White: Kg1, Nd1, a2, b2, c3, g3
Black: Kg8. Bg7, a6, b7, f5, h7
--
I've a short range Knight against far-seeking Bee and pawns in both wings.
The text follows:
--
26. ... Kf7 27. Kf2 Ke6 28. Kf3 b5 29. Ne3 Be5 30. g4 fxg4+
31. Kxg4 Bd6 32. c4 Bc5 33. cxb5 axb5 34. Nc2 Kd5 35. b4 Bd4 36. Na3 Kc6 37. Kh5 Bg7 38. Kg5 Bb2
39. Nxb5!
{a Bishop and RP don't win vs K when a corner square isn't of Bishop's colour}
39. ... Bc1+ 40. Kh5 Kxb5
41. a3 Bxa3 42. Kh6 Bxb4 43. Kxh7
a draw, 1/2-1/2

Hi!
I tried to find but there is no improvement in this position.
39. Nb5! is good for a draw but there is no chanses for win here.
such is chess, in open positions like this mr.bishop dominates under the knight
don't be sorry you did the best
