The two bishop checkmate is a great end game that keeps the bishops together the whole closing off more and more space until the king is checkmated.
yeah this is a book ending, very important to know.
Both black and white didn't play the best on that board you presentig, which make this example a help-mate instead of really showing the theory behind the mate.
