Opposite-Colored Bishops

Opposite-Colored Bishops

Bishops of opposite colors have always been considered rather peaceful opponents. The drawing tendencies in these endgames are very high but if the conditions are right (there are good passed pawns, one of the bishops is much stronger than the other, or one of the sides has a more active king) we can successfully play for a win.

Do or Die with Rook Endings

Do or Die with Rook Endings

Endings with rooks and pawns are by far the most common endings in chess. You will probably lose or gain as more points in these positions than in all other endings combined. Therefore you need to know the basic positions, and some strategic principles when the play becomes more difficult. I want to have you learn and practice the former, and give you a feel for the latter.

Bishop versus Knight (Part 1)

Bishop versus Knight (Part 1)

It is generally known that the bishop is stronger than the knight in most cases. Some experts even call such an advantage "a small exchange." Why the bishop is better, and when in the endgame-- this is what we are going to discover in our course. I tried to choose only fresh samples from modern practice when strong players were following their plans in the best possible way.

Roots of Positional Understanding

Roots of Positional Understanding

The Roots of Positional Understanding, by IM Jeremy Silman. Are you ever at a loss for what to do when there are no immediate tactics in sight? If so, then you need to learn the basics of positional play. The master seems to optimally place his pieces with effortless ease where they coordinate well and control key lines and squares. This is because he sees the board as a structural entity. (Initial release date of November 20, 1998)
