Eliminating the ficheanto

The ficheanto is a bishop on g2/g7 and b2/b7. It plays a very important role. The kingside ficheanto is important for black in the silican. If you move your g/b pawn, you need this bishop, because this bishop guards important holes - f3/f6 and h3/h6 on the kingside and c6/c3 and a3/a6 on the queenside

If this bishop is not there, learn how to attack
but the pawn on f6 may not be present. In such situations, the knight is very effective
If the bishop is there we should exchange it
