How many times have we found ourselves staring at the board, with an apparently easy position, without having the faintest idea of how to proceed? We know that the win is there, but it's impossible to come up with the right idea, probably only for we don't know the technique to pull out the win. And here is YOUR video-series, then! Joel makes you understand how to tackle a position, with his incredible and super-clear way to explain chess ideas and concepts. Don't miss this new, exciting, and useful feat by GM Joel Benjamin! Watch the videos to get your game one of five notches up.

This week we take a palate-cleansing break from endgames to explore the theme of trapped bishops. These are bishops that are not in danger of imminent capture, but have no way to reroute to other areas of the board due to changes in the pawn structure. Five classic examples from the chess literature show the potential dangers of bishops gone bad.
