Endgame : Checkmate with knight pair

Two Knights
Checkmate with a king and two knights is one of the rare possibilities in the game of chess. Sometimes checkmate is possible with two knights against one pawn as the pawn removes the stalemate defense. Sometimes two knights and a king can force a checkmate against a pawn and the king. The tactics is to block the opponent's pawn with the knight and push the king to the stalemate position. The knight however plays the checkmate.
