Every Russian Schoolboy Knows: Complex Minor Piece Endgames - Bishop and Knight vs. Two Knights - Part 4

Opening: D36, D32, D46, A07:

Player(s): Nakamura, Onischuk, Karpov, Fressinet, Leko, Ehlvest

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.
More random examples in Video #4 demonstrate how excessively complex such endgames can be. Yet, with a careful review of the material offered one can get some idea to handle them.
