We've all seen positions where a knight dominates a bishop in a fixed pawn structure...but how do we reach such positions in our own games?

Naturally, the key is to make a favourable exchange of our bishop for the opponent's knight, and ideally, also exchange one of the bishops beforehand, so that the opponent does not have the Bishop Pair Advantage (which - SPOILER - I will cover more deeply in another Youtube video, scheduled in 1-2 days from this post). 

Here is the video - enjoy!
