Domination

4/14/2010 – We have recently seen how hard it can be to hold the draw against a rook in a simplified position when you have only a bishop - there were the examples of McShane-Danin ("The fortress breaker") and Dragun-Leniart ("Zugzwang").

C) No matter where the king goes, Black can never ever win. Larger diagram and analysis by Karsten Müller in ChessBase Magazine Online.
