King with Knight and Bishop vs King =
The goal is to get checkmate no more than in 2 minutes anywhere the king is on the board.

The chess position above is one of the most difficult endgame positions to master but, with practice all things are possible.

Believe it or not the white pieces checkmate the black king by force. The rule is you must get checkmate in the corner of the same color square as the bishop. If black hopes to prolong the checkmate he can try to defend by staying in the center or running to a corner that is the opposite color of the bishop.
