In chess, the technique of exchanging pieces is the ultimate knowledge. The biggest specialists of this were such greats as Akiba Rubinstein and Vasily Smyslov. The exchange bishop for knight is the most common case. The technique of exploiting the individual power of these pieces is completely different. The bishop is well placed on certain strategical outposts where it controls diagonals or both flanks. The technique of knight play is much more complicated, since this piece can attack weaknesses of any colour and thus may change its target many times. The knight is especially strong in the centre, in blockade positions and against doubled pawns - all these cases are explained on this product. Enjoy!
