Content: 2 hours and 22 minutes of instruction and analysis in a series of 5 Lectures.

More experienced players understand the power of the bishop.
A pair of bishops is decidedly superior to either a bishop and a knight, or two knights. A player possessing a pair of bishops has a strategic weapon in the form of a long-term threat to trade down to an advantageous endgame.
Two bishops vs king can force checkmate, whereas two knights cannot. A bishop and knight can force mate, but with far greater difficulty than two bishops.

Here our masters outline successful strategies for employing bishop pairs.
