We've all heard about the bad-bishop (BB) and dealt with it some way or another.
I like to show you ( the beginning of ) a game I played where I managed to exploit the BB theme.
I am interested to see some more games where the BB played a decisive role.
Please feel free to post them here. Any comment on the theme is welcome.
Did you develop your Bishop on a3 to try to force an exchange ?
I had the Black pieces. No , White didn't go Ba3.
NN stands for : Nomen nescio = name unknown. It is used in chess to be polite and not to name the opponent.
Here is the entire game :
I admit that it was not a great game , but I was playing against the BB throughout the entire game. I never did it before.
your black bishop is as inactive as whites black bishop so whats wrong? i think black plan: e6; c5, cxd, Nc6 and bb4(if white does the following c3 and cxd moves instead of Nxd4) if Nxd4 than white has worse
qSweet , that is true. It is not very active (yet) but it is not a BAD bishop. It is not hampered by its own pawns. It is easier for me to develop this Bishop then it is for White.
