Bishop v Knight: the verdict - 2nd hand
2nd hand. Book condition: Like New
Controversy has long reigned over the relative strength of the bishop and knight. Traditional thinking has been that the bishop excels in open positions whereas the knight is superior in blocked positions. Leading players have differed in their views: Chigorin was a staunch advocate of the knights, while Botvinnik was a master of the raking bishops.
Steve Mayer uses practical examples to illustrate positions which favour one minor piece over the other and provides a serious analysis of the long-debated topic.
