Watch how silly a bishop feels when all of his pawns are on the same color as him. You'll also see some common endgame ideas like triangulation and decoy. It takes a lot of knowledge to be World Champion, which is exactly what the White player became in this very tournament!

Knights and bishops - they look different, they move different, they're of course spelled different. So why should you treat them the same? I know that coaches (us included!) begin by teaching you that they are both worth three points. But depending on what is happening in your game, they go up or down in value. Today IM Rusa Goletiani shows you that outposts make knights jump for joy!
