In the open board, Bishops are much too fast for a King to catch, but throw some pawns in their way... and the King will walk all over them! GM Dejan Bojkov explains as much in today's video, first providing a couple creative "Opposite Colored" Bishop examples, and eventually ending with an amazing practical game designed to show the true power of a King and his passed pawns. There's a reason why the King has the best seat in the house, and the bishops are always by his side!
