Good and bad bishop

Feb 26, 2009, 7:32 AM |

Here I will post my own notes from studying books on strategy. Starting with the notes from "simple chess" by John Emms, chapter 2, about the bishop pair. The game illustrates the good and bad bishop. What we see is black trying to exchange the bishops, in order to maintain a superior horse against a white's light squared bishop that resembles a big pawn where it is placed.

Underways some tactics enforce the game to an end. It is interesting how Emms publishes his own mistakes. Admirable.
