Two Interesting Endgames

     I recently had two endings in online G15 games that were quite instructive.  In the first game I thought White was winning, but it appears we had reached a drawn position.  White’s big mistake was not realizing how dangerous my h-Pawn was and when he chose to ignore its advance in favor of pushing his own passed d-Pawn, he soon discovered my N could hold up its advance while his own K and N were too far away to stop my h-Pawn.
     In the second ending with B’s of opposite color White was apparently under the assumption that they are always drawn, but it was not possible for him to prevent the advance of my P’s on both sides of the board.
