Some of these puzzles should be sub-titled 'spot the bishop' !    

 I like that. Or, 'Peekaboo' !

Yes - that is a lesson many of us can draw from a simple Sunday puzzle.

In doing puzzles, we must especially look for our own bishops and what they can do for us. In a game, the danger is in overlooking the opponent's lurking bishop.

I guess it's because bishops (our own or our opponents') are rather far away and off at an angle. A Distant Rook's path is marked by a line of squares - like a paved highway, and the knights and pawns tend to be closer in, and we are always aware of he queens.  But the bishop can be buried near the edge of the board and control more than is apparent.

In this case, white fianchettoed his white-squares Bishop.  Typically, that is not a bishop to be ignored.
