Rook and Bishop versus Rook and Knight endings

The rook and bishop superiority over a rook and knight with an open center and pawns on two wings is real in most of the cases and not just theoretical. But the final evaluation depends on a few factors.

White’s chances also increase if his optimal kingside configuration implies placing the pawns on square of the other color than those controlled by the bishop.
