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.
