    No pawns on the board.

    Is this a win the majority piece holder, or a draw, with perfect play?

    It's a win.

    Here's a link to an endgame tablebase, it will tell you all you need to know.

    Thanks, looks like a forced win in 15 moves or so, or a draw, depending on the next moves.

    Umm, you are not allowed to consult an end game database during a live game. That would be cheating and is against site rules, just in case there is any confusion..
