Bishop and Knight Save the Day
About / Bishop and Knight Save the Day
Sergei Tkachenko has collected 100 studies whose common theme is that white ends up with just a bishop and knight in the finale, yet manages to win or draw.
There are no more than six moves in almost all solutions, so experienced chess players can analyze the positions directly from the diagrams. Newbies to chess problems will also find analyzing these studies useful. The diverse set of tactical ideas involving a bishop and knight in the finale will enable them to gain a deeper understanding of how the bishop and knight pair combine.
Some of these studies are classics from bygone ages. Others were originally published in the Soviet Union or ex-Soviet countries. This is the seventh book in the World Champion’s Favorite Studies series by Sergei Tkachenko to be published by Elk and Ruby Publishing House.
