The Power of the Bishop Pair

The Power of the Bishop Pair

One of the most common situations that happen in the middlegames is when we or our opponent have the advantage of double bishops. 

We should know how to use it and how to fight against it.

The course is divided into 11 sections so it'll be easy to consume the material on which we've worked for more than 6 months.

Below are some of the positions taken from the course:
