    I have watched ten of your videos and am very impressed.  They are very clear and easy to follow/understand.  I have learned a great deal and am looking forward to viewing the remaining lectures.

    Thank you for providing some much needed information.

    sir at 24:11 wont it be better for white to move Bh3 restricting the king rather than protecting that pawn

    Dear  JG27Pyth, indeed I chose samples in which subtle play was needed. The idea was to show that even with strong players are helpless against the bishop pair. The winning player was forced to find the subtle moves, as his opponent was also defending very well. Which means that when you play against the opponent of yor club level, he will also make mistakes, and you will not be the only one. Good luck with your games!

    Hi GM Bojkov, thank you for the great lectures, they are fantastic, definitely some of the best on chess.com. Very clearly presented and every question in each position is always answered. Thanks again and hope to hear more soon.

    Wonderful games very well explained and very well chosen examples to illustrate the Bishop pair... but this video also serves to confirm my impression that the strength of the Bishop pair really does not count for much unless the player with the bishop pair is very strong. Very accurate resourceful play (the kind this video illustrates!) seems needed to turn the Bishop pair to real advantage.  Ordinary club players aren't going to find the moves that Giri or Steinitz found. Giri's technique from the point he sacs the exchange to the end of the game is extraordinary and beautiful -- I can only dream of playing with such a combination of creativity and accuracy.

    Great video. Thank you for the lecture.  I was especially impressed with the first game, seeing how the two bishops set up a fortress that even the opposing King and Queen could not breach. Wow!
