    The mail target is to put the opponent’s king in the white corner if your bishop is white (and to the black one if it’s black). But it’s quite complicated for a single message)

  • xangzuclaws at 2003-01-18 Against best defence this mate takes over 40 moves. So you have to get it right to beat the 50 moves without progress rule. You can find the solution in “Practical Chess Endings” by Paul Keres.

    As long as the king stays in the center, knight+bishop+king vs. king = technical draw.
