Is there a stratagem of checkmate in this situation (White Knight & King vs. black King) or can it even be done?


Dear viewer,

The minimum elements required to checkmate your opponent's King are as follows:

King + Queen, or King + Rook, or King + Bishop + Knight, or King + Bishop + Bishop.

Thus, it is not possible to make a checkmate to the opposite King with a King + Knight, or with a King + Bishop or King + Knight + Knight.
