I'm kinda new to blitz chess. I've noticed that people go out of their way to exchange bishops for knights. Even if it means weakening their position. I almost never see it go the other way around. Is there some innate advantage to having a knight in blitz games? If not why so many trades?
a knight can beat a bishop anytime. there looser's.
In that position the knight does beat the bishop. After the bishop captures the queen, the knight then captures the bishop.
Anyone else disgusted by fat chess players?
