    Do you mean the endgame K + B + N vs K? If so you could do what I did. Get your hands on some five piece endgame tablebases and defend it a few times against the machine. Then, once you think you have the idea, practice playing it out against the machine. Although, to be honest, it's only worth it to learn how use knights and bishops together as I think that endgame's come up once in my life. I did manage to do it though (in a 10 minute game as well).

    Here you go. I recommend this channel actually, there are a few other endings and some fun commentary on live games. Jerry is really entertaining actually, one of the best on youtube imo.

    2 or 3 days before each OTB tournament, I go to this video to refresh the knowledge.
