Strong knight versus ... strong bishop

Strong knight versus ... strong bishop

Yes, that was not a typo. Today I played two games within one hour where my knight won against the bishop in an open position !

I was a bit surprised how relatively easy I won, but I realized that active and better king position, and better pawn position can leave the bishop party with empty hands afterwards.

 


Now, this reminds me of the fondness for bishops by Bobby Fischer.

If you like bishops as well and have not seen the beautiful bishop chess games from Bobby Fischer, then have a look :
