One of the most persistent misunderstandings among chess fans is that positions with opposite-coloured bishops are drawish. In fact, opposite-coloured bishops tend to make the position sharper and are a favourite and often winning weapon of World Champion Magnus Carlsen. The way the bishop moves is much easier to grasp for beginners than the way the knight moves, but, paradoxically, its ways turn out to be more mysterious. Sometimes a seemingly bad bishop turns out to be a good bishop. Experienced trainer IM Merijn van Delft from the Netherlands has carefully selected 12 instructive games. Most of these games are from absolute elite players, while some are from his own tournament practice, and thus contain first hand explanations. The games are thoroughly analysed and played through with the interactive Chessbase video software. Every one of these games will provide you with a serious training session. Good luck and enjoy!
