What difference does it make ?

" This is by far the most common NQE, with 8.8% of all 2600+ encounters involving this particular material imbalance. It's therefore evident that, as it's so relevant to practical play, it's an area a serious player would be wise to study.

The fact that the properties of a bishop differ from those of a knight lends itself to a number of generalities concerning the relative strength of these pieces. If we take an empty chessboard and place a bishop and a knight randomly in the central arena, we notice that the bishop can have as many as 13 possible moves whereas a knight can at best only have eight.

The logical deduction would be that the bishop is potentially a better piece, and it's true that most GMs, if given the choice, will take the bishop.

As we know, however, there are a number of positions where a knight can at least hold its own, so chess commentators have developed a consensus view of the relative merits of the minor pieces in different types of position:

1 . A bishop is generally stronger than a knight when the position is open, if the pawns are broken, or play is on both flanks.

2. A knight is often better than a bishop in fairly closed positions, if play is on a limited front, or if the bishop is restricted by its own pawns.

If we tum our attention to the main subject of this chapter, in which each side has a rook as well as a minor piece, then a common view in books is that rook and bishop are worth more than rook and knight. Having surveyed many examples of this NQE I'm not sure that I agree. The broad arguments that I've mentioned above are frequently overturned, for instance by a slight alteration in the pawn structure, a better-placed king or by several other factors."

Glenn Flear, Practical Endgame Play beyond the basics (chapter 12)

= ♖ ♗ = ♖ ♘ = ♖ ♗ = ♖ ♘ = ♖ ♗ = ♖ ♘ = ♖ ♗ = ♖ ♘ = ♖ ♗ = ♖ ♘ = ♖ ♗ = ♖ ♘ =

"In general the line-up of rook plus bishop is rather stronger than rook and knight <to a large extent this depends on structure>, but a few grandmasters for example Evgeni Ellinovich Sveshnikov, think the reserve. Rook and knight is stronger when there are <fixed weaknesses> or, for example, when there are <doubled pawns>."

Alexander Beliavsky + Adrian Mikhalchishin in <Winning Endgame Strategy>

= ♖ ♗ = ♖ ♘ = ♖ ♗ = ♖ ♘ = ♖ ♗ = ♖ ♘ = ♖ ♗ = ♖ ♘ = ♖ ♗ = ♖ ♘ = ♖ ♗ = ♖ ♘ =

Müller/Lamprecht say that 15% of all games reach an ending of rook and minor piece vs rook and minor piece, so that you can expect to get such one in every tournament.

Their statistics, with relative percentage frequencies, rounded:

♖♗ vs ♖♘ (45%) ♖♗ vs ♖♗ (22%) some coloured ♗
♖♗ vs ♖♗ (13%) opp. coloured ♗
♖♘ vs ♖♘ (20%).

= ♖ ♗ = ♖ ♘ = ♖ ♗ = ♖ ♘ = ♖ ♗ = ♖ ♘ = ♖ ♗ = ♖ ♘ = ♖ ♗ = ♖ ♘ = ♖ ♗ = ♖ ♘ =

educational video http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iQum... Karpov's ensuing technique is absolutely brilliant, patiently massaging black's pawn weaknesses until he senses the critical moment to sacrifice his queenside pawns to form a potentially winning mating net around black's king on the kingside. Karpov's positional pressure and subsequent technical conversion in this game is extremely instructional as he wears down Kramnik's defense with a long series of threats to finish the game with a devastating tactical sequence.
