41_R+N - TActical TAngos
Compiled by whiteshark
--*--

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%) same coloured ♗
♖♗ vs ♖♗ (13%) opp. coloured ♗
<♖♘ vs ♖♘ (20%)>

external lectures: http://roman-chess.blogspot.de/2012...

Christopher Lutz in "Endspieltraining für die Praxis" sagt: <Die Kombination von ♖+♘ ist taktisch äußerst kompliziert. Konkrete Varianten haben den Vorrang vor allgemeinen strategischen Überlegungen. Man beachte den hochtaktischen Verlauf von C Lutz vs Huebner, 1994 <...>>

"In endings with rook and knight against rook and knight a slight initiative usually weighs heavily" - GM Karsten Müller
