  Gypsy: <IMlday: re: N vs 3 pawns. I suspect it depends on which pawns. The N is more mobile vs center pawns than wing pawns. I've only had it once but it was adjourned so I got to study it carefully. Fine, the authority at that time, claimed draw but it looked winning to me.>

Conversation from Hecht vs Suttles, 1969.

  nasmichael: From move 33, was there an alternative ending for white?
Premium Chessgames Member
  IMlday: His best drawing chance is by exchanging as many pawns as possible. That explains 33.e4. The alternative probably is something like 33.Ke2 Kf6 34.Kd3 e6 35.dxe6 Kxe6 36.Nc6 but it doesn't look hopeful.
