When you have the bishop pair in an open position and are not down any material, you either
- Destroy your opponent
- Crush your opponent (happens more often)
- Defeat your opponent
When that happens, you usually have a big smile on your face. Like this example.
Basically, Bishops (and bonus if it’s the bishop pair!) tend to give chess players nightmares. Why? Because they’re bullies!
Buuut….for the side on the attack, they can be angels!
