We are ants crawling across the chessboard. The endgame K+R versus K+N has been known for a thousand years. I once used it to save a half point early in this century. While the Rook can trap the Knight in some positions, even masters are known to have difficulty finding a win while the clock is ticking. And then there is the following endgame study. A computer tested forced win that goes OVER FIVE HUNDRED MOVES without a piece being captured. Perhaps we should tone down any remarks on the limited scope of chess on 64 squares.


Black to play, White wins in 517 moves
