Default An extra minor piece ...

Excerpt fom EG168 :

" Before giving some examples I should formulate a general rule: according
to classical endgame theory, one extra minor piece wasn't sufficient for a
win in a pawnless position.
Of course such an assumption was based on intuitive generalization of
elementary positions, But chess endgame isn't a math equation and computers
now seem to refute that theory.
It is almost clear today that one extra minor piece is a general win, except
for several endings with less than 7 pieces."
