|Jun-21-05|| ||Runemaster: A strange game. At the end, Randy has to show that he knows how to win with B+N v K, but before that he has to get through the unusual situation of B+N v 3P.|
|Dec-03-05|| ||Chopin: Great game. Bishop and Knight Vs King are very hard endgames. Technique is crucial, otherwise the games can go on for ages.|
|Dec-03-05|| ||Koster: Personally I wouldn't play this out against anyone over 2200 and white was clearly much better than that.|
|Dec-03-05|| ||Chopin: <koster> good point! I think most masters and GMs can play BN v K in their sleep.|
|Dec-03-05|| ||aw1988: You would be really suprised. In Dvoretsky's works he shows dozens upon dozens of 'tragicomedies'.|
|Apr-22-06|| ||blingice: I wish I could do this. I don't think I'll get into the situation enough to spend my time on it though.|
|Oct-11-06|| ||blazerdoodle: Set it up with Fritz9. It's astonishing watching Fritz9 crush me in positions and situations I didn't even know were possible. It is a mind boggling endgame.|
|Oct-11-06|| ||TrueFiendish: The plan is simple but not so simple to carry out: force opposition king to corner of opposite colour to that of your bishop. Then force along rank or file to adjacent corner and mate with one of several formations.|
|Oct-11-06|| ||syracrophy: Awesome!
I can't believe I drew a game where I had ++2 vs. I felt incredibly embarassed. I really need to learn how to win with bishop+knight vs king
|Feb-02-08|| ||achieve: Yes, keep practising -- I have been doing that for two months now and it pays off bigtime.|
64. Ba4 was the better way to go, grabbing that a4-e8 cut-off diagonal... 64...Ka5 then simply 65 Bd7 foll by 66. Ne6 - and the lone King is unable to escape the corner of doom...
Mate within 10 moves if you practise this for a while in order to have a remedy against every attempt of escape, and to drive the King to a8.
|Jul-24-08|| ||ravel5184: I have been practising KBN vs. K thirty minutes a day for two weeks and I still don't have it completely down! I get confused when it is that I have to let the King off the back row.|

I have seen a couple of strong players fumble here, and overstepping the 50 move limit. Great fun, and after having seen that, today I'd play on.
At the least one could get a refresher on how it was done. :-)|
|May-28-09|| ||WhiteRook48: I overstep the move limit in this situation all the time|
|May-28-09|| ||vajeer: I think black missed
38 Bxc6 then Ra2
|May-28-12|| ||juan31: Tecnica, Tecnica y más Tecnica !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!|
|May-29-12|| ||Golden Executive: |
Exactamente <juan31>, esta partida es una excelente demostración de técnica de finales.
Después de <47.Nxc7> las "Endgame Nalimov Tablebases 6 pieces" concluyen: Mate en 34 jugando perfecto, el Mate ocurrió en 31.
Pareciera ser un buen prospecto para el Guess the move.
