    That was SO much clearer than explanations I've encountered in certain well regarded endgame books.

    For an old duffer like me - 50 years,  on and off,  at this great game - you'dthink a "basics" video like this would be a waste of time.  Wrong! Watching this was relaxing,  enjoyable,  and I learned something.  In all those years I've never had a 2-bishop v. K situation in practical play,  and I didn't know about getting the K onto the appropriate 'N3' square.  So I learned something new.  Got some practice at basic calculation.  Felt the awe all players feel at seeing pieces work in harmony.  So thanks for a neat video,  and a reminder that we're never too old to go back to basics.

    Thanks very much again  for  FM Todd Andrews , and I want to emphasize the following:

    K + R can  do checkmate for the lone  king ,while the king and one bishop can not  do so

    im not a beginner and i have in the past needed to mate with just the two bishops & when i was a boy all i learned patterns for were the queen, rook, two rooks: when recently i was faced with the situation in praxis i managed it but it was a good job there was plenty of time on my clock Embarassed anyway now ty cos i know the pattern and i agree with both bluey12345 we need the other ones, especially that one that uses the enemies own pawn Laughing and also with diaganol about how good it is when you show the space control for the visualisation which is incidentally the way that i solve it without knowing the pattern using which spaces I control/need to shut down as a key guideline but there was plenty of hit and miss moments, chow.

    how about making one on bishop and knight?It's really hard to force the mate unless the king is close to the correct corner square. Or maybe 2 knights against king and pawn? I really need to learn the 2 knights checkmate
