    I'll have to review the last technique and practice it quite a bit, thank you for showing me a clear concise way on how.

    Senerio 1 - I like the idea that it is never a good idea to play for check in the rook king end game rather look to push the king off the board by cutting off his options. Moving the rook away from the opposing king seems counter intuitive but when you follow this with setting up with opposing kings followed by check by the rook it makes all the sense in the world.

    Senerio 2 - Think of the picture you want to end the game with and then figure out the steps to get there. In the two bishop king senerio, force opposing king into one of the four corners. Advance king as close to opposing king as possible making rectangle smaller and smaller while being careful not to deliver stalemate. Sometimes you need to bring bishops to the middle of board and make tactical use of waiting moves.

    Senerio 3 - memorization.
