QN vs RBB material distribution

QN vs RBB Is a fascinating one. Normally the QN side is the dominating side but the underdog can put up some resistance. The imbalance is similar to RRN vs RBB.

Some example positions to highlight it.

Engines understanding material imbalances has been exciting for computer chess. Not as many plain, boring games as there used to be.

This is why I like Spartan Chess so much, as a variant: every end-game there is imbalanced, because white and black play with completely different pieces.
