    I was just wondering if against good play if two bishops and connected passed pawns vs. rook and bishop and doubled pawns could win or if they normally win.

    I know everything depends but all I was asking for was a general answer

    General answer, the 2 bishops and connected pawns.

    It really depends on the position and were the kings are.

    I've seen 2 bishops dominate a rook and knight and some pawns. Absolutely dominate. It was amazing to watch.
