Mate with Bishop and Generalized Leaper

Postby byakuugan » Fri Oct 30, 2015 1:31 am

I feel like Bishop + any non-colorbound leaper or 2-way colorbound leaper (opposite bishop's color) should be able to force mate on a board that has mating corners, but I am observing through tablebase analysis that Bishop + 6,1 leaper is generally a draw on 8x8. I was thinking that Bishop + 6,1 leaper might actually be able to force checkmate on a 16x16 instead, though I don't have the means to generate the tablebase.
My reasoning is that King + Bishop alone can prevent King from crossing a certain diagonal, and will gain tempo whenever defender's K is forced to switch directions to try to penetrate the diagonal. It seems like the leaper should always have enough tempo to control 1 of the squares on the diagonal adjacent to bishop's diagonal and closer to mating corner; then bishop can take over next smaller diagonal of its color while king and other piece control diagonal of opposite color to keep defender's K within the shrinking triangular region.

Interesting. It seems your intuition that larger boards are better is right, at least considering the Flamingo (F'). On 8x8 and 10x10 boards KBF'.K is a general draw, but on 12x12 it is a general win:
