Two Bishops v Knight

While I'm not sure that this is a question that keeps people awake at night but, "can 2 Bishops win against a Knight", does get asked from time to time. In the first round of the FIDE Online Nations Cup, Fabiano Caruana shows that they can.

2B vs. N was one of the first surprises to emerge from the earliest tablebases. Before then, everyone thought it should be drawn.
