Strange that. Is it so infrequent or blindingly obvio ...[text shortened]... 'm not asking for help, just references and some reading to point me in the right direction.
This subject is way above my pay grade, but FWIW, here goes.
I wasn't able to find any online resources. (It's probably too complicated to easily post on the internet.) However, the books "Basic Chess Endings" by Fine, "Fundamental Chess Endings" by Muller, and "Dvoretsky's Endgame Manual" have a few examples. The Dvoretsky book tries to make a couple of general statements, but it's clear that these positions are complicated enough that they can't be completely distilled down to a generalized rule. If you can easily and quickly get your hands on one of these books (especially Dvoretsky's book), it might help you a little.
