Every Russian Schoolboy Knows: Complex Minor Piece Endgames - Bishop and Knight vs. Two Knights - Part 2

Opening: D48:

Player(s): Greenfeld, Bykhovsky

This four-part series deals with a difficult subject of complex minor piece endgames. Of all possible configurations with two pieces for each side, only examples of the bishop pair advantage and its applications in endgame play can be found in chess literature. The rest has been largely left ignored. I decided to focus on positions where one side tries to convert an advantage while having Bishop and Knight versus two Knights for the defender.

Video #2 demonstrates an amazing concept of advancing the passed pawn without help of the king. It turns out that a far advanced passed pawn can completely tie down both knights, while the combined efforts of bishop and knight can keep the defenders king from approaching the pawn. Accurate calculation is a must, and again, the attacker failed at the finish line.
