As a teenager my chess teacher showed me lots of chess games and examples.

One endgame type that impressed me a lot was :

For example like this :

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

In a game today, I played against a strong player to whom I lost already 3 times in the past.

The well known wrong color bishop appeared !
