which is more powerful bishop or knight?

contemplativeideals

Ofcourse Knight. Very dangerous.

If the position is closed then knights, if the position is open and bishop has strong squares then the bishop is better.

It depends on the situation...

Bishops can't protect each other but knights can protect each other

False. Two same-colored bishops can protect each other.

In chess bishops are not same colored. One is light squared and other is dark squared bishop and they cannot protect each other

that's actually incorrect, because if you promote a pawn into a bishop(which, why would u do that when you could get a queen but whatever), then you can have two of the same bishops

yeah that's right, i didn't think of that, thanks for pointing it out..

I know this game. I don't know of any other examples. Looks like two bishops of same color can protect each other and chain-link.

HEY EVERYONE DONT THINK IT IS A STALEMATE

IT IS BLACK TO MOVE NOT WHITE TO MOVE

JUST ARRANGE THIS POSITION ON YOUR CHESS BOARD OR IN ONLINE

THIS POSITION WAS FOUND IN CHESSKID TO PROVE THAT IT IS NOT POSSIBLE TO CHECKMATE WITH 2 KNIGHTS

Of course it's possible. It's been done. Is this position a KNN vs K checkmate?

 

You literally can’t get that without stalemate

Specifically, what do you mean by that? When the black king went from g8 to h8, he simply wasn't thinking about checkmate. He thought it wasn't possible to checkmate with a KNN vs. K endgame. It's a mistake that leads to the N to g7 checkmate.

Unlikely, yes. But not impossible. I'm not sure what you mean by not getting to this position without stalemate.

Scorpion promoted to a bishop is in other words an statistical fluke.

Where r these stats from? I'd always figured eventually computers would be able to give us an average valuation for each piece.
