43_R+B -opp.col. (wonderful attacking weapons)
Compiled by whiteshark
--*--

Endings with Bishops of opposite color are of frequent occurence, yet the chess literature offers relatively few examples with a Rook added to each side.

<The presence of the Rook often overcomes the drawish tendency that results from the Bishop's inability to command squares of more than one color.

<The general strategic principles of endgame play are again to be observed. The player having <

- the better centralized King,

- pawns controlling squares of the same color as the enemy Bishop,

- and the more mobile Rook

< usually has winning chances.

>>>>

-- CJS Purdy "On The Endgame"

<<Opposite colored Bishops> are wonderful attacking weapons in the middlegame (or in endgames with many pieces remaining) since one Bishop can attack something that the other can't defend.> -- Jeremy Silman

= = = = = = = = = = = = = = = =

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%)
