Winning with knight and bishop against king Hi guys

I am a novice chess player. I have a game where I know I can win since I have knight + bishop + king against king. But i haven't found a really helpfull guide to how to get to the winning position.

My problem is twofold.
1. Pushing the other players king towards the winning position.
2. I think there is a position that must be reached on the back row with opponent king. Which is it?
3. How do I get from that position to push the opponent king into the corner?

Thanks for the help

actually, Games in progress on this site are not supposed to be discussed. My advice to you is to do an internet search on chess endgame, see if you can find your answer there. If not, and you have any books, definatly check those out as well. If you can't find your answer that way, then play your best and then win lose or draw, repost and ask people (those who are stronger player than myself, of course) at that time how you could have played better.

Check out this link. it shows how to win with just a bishop+king+knight. And since its really just a game history I dont think its breaking the rules if you use it to understand how to win in your position. Good luck.

It is probably the most complex thematic check mate, to such an extent that the Grand Masters have difficulties to carry out it. Basically it should be taken to the king contrary to the corners of the board where the square-corner is of the same color that our bishop.

well, i don't feel so bad about not really understanding the technique after reading Averbakh's Essential Chess Endings. He gives a couple of examples and ends with a comment that the student now has the requisite knowledge to perform such a mate when required!

you cant loose go n playing ..since the other cant win with only the king..
its rare to occur in really game with that end game.. it tired some.. jsut its possibel in about 35 move.. so the 50 rules must be taken too..
you must sse in the book how this technik works.. so you get your aim there..

mating position Buy the book "Chess Fundamentals" by J.R. Capablanca. Its in Amazon. He explains this particular ending. The book is a book every serious player has to read. Everyone knows Capa was an expert in ending. The other day I had king+queen vs. King + Rook. Thansk to Capa I won it fairly easily. The book will teach you about the most difficult ending of all Rook+ pawns versus the same. I know I virtually don't lose such endings since I read what one of the two people who knew them best (the second being Akiba Rubinstein). Capa also expalains the middle game. The only thing he was weak at was the openings. For them you have books and articles on the internet to last you for a lifetime.
