Whats better two bishops, or two knights?
So I was sitting around playing chess the other day and I thought which is better two bishops or two knights, as both add up to six points each? Well I think that I figured it out. On an empty board you can checkmate a player with two bishops, but you can't do it with two knights. Watch my diagram. If anyone out there knows how to checkmate with two knights please let me know. Okay and here's the two knights version . . .
. . . Okay so you see that when you have two knights, there has to be a stalemate before white can checkmate.
