Here is a good endgame study from a recent game. It is white to play. In the game I ended up drawing as I was running  out of time. Should be a forced mate in 9 or less.

The move I made was Ng5, which was not the best, though white is still winning.

Here is a position from one of my games against Fritz rated play.  It is an endgame with black having one extra pawn.  

In the actual game I ended up drawing, I am black and it is black to play. I was concerned that my King was too far away from the pawns and white`s King would be able to start breaking through.

Can you see the best continuation for black?

No doubt some people will find this easy, during the game I missed it.  I will post black`s best move in the comments section.
