    hi here is a game i played on Fics where i think there must be a technique to winning,
    but i dont know what it is, anyone help, regards Robbie.



    it appeared to me that the black king cannot get in front of the pawn because of said
    white rook, is there not some technique for advancing the knight pawn?

    it's black to play right, or is the black king positioned wrong?

    I think white can win here. But I'm bad at endgames, so could you give a hint why you doubt about that.
