GM Miguel Illescas - Chess Strategy Lessons - Video 2

Opening: D02, B23, C60, E20, A45: Queen's Pawn Game, Sicilian: closed, Ruy Lopez, Nimzo-Indian Defense, Trompowsky attack

Player(s): Carlsen, Kramnik, Illescas, Martin, Liang, Korobov

In this second video of his fantastic series, GM Miguel Illescas tackles on a situation that occurs very often in a chess game: Bishop takes Knight. Specifically, GM Miguel shows us the case where a "good" bishop takes a knight. Kramnik said that a bad Bishop is better than a Knight, and he is a virtuoso of the "bishop pair.". As usual, the truth is in the middle. In the video, GM Illescas shows us - with some good examples - the balance between these two pieces, which some consider being the real "interesting wood" in a chess game. Despite being so different, the Knight and the Bishop have more or less the same value, but, as you'll see in the video, it mostly depends on what's happening on the board!
