o.k., upon popular demand, here you are:

Knight endings are usually considered to be the closest to king and pawn endings, but the presence of knights still alters the position. The main characteristics of such endings are:

< 1. The knight's short range renders outside passed pawns especially strong.

< 2. Knights hate rooks' pawns! Knights are quite clumsy when fighting against passed pawns in general, but they are especially poor against a rook's pawn. This is because the edge of the board seriously restricts the knight's agility in a way that it does not always do to other pieces, certainly not to the same extent.

< 3. The knight is not able to lose a tempo by itself. This is often an important factor, and means that if some form of Zugzwang position arises, only the kings can use triangulation to lose a tempo and transfer the move.

< 4. As in many endings, king activity is a big factor in knight endings, as is space generally.

< 5. Finally, because of the knight's clumsiness in fighting against a passed pawn, a knight sacrifice, to deflect its opposite number and set a passed pawn decisively in motion, is often a common feature of such endings.
