This is video #17 from the “Beginner to Chess Master” playlist. Is it a winning position if you have a bishop and a pawn versus an opponent’s lone king? Usually yes, however there are cases when winning is in fact impossible! Are you familiar with these conditions? Understanding this basic endgame idea will help us to not only make the correct decisions in more complex positions, but also formulate plans which can lead us on a path to success. Get your pencil and paper ready for the end of this video. A pop quiz of 5 multiple choice questions, and 1 bonus question will be thrown your way to test your understanding of what is known as “the wrong colored bishop”. How will you score?
Beginner to Chess Master Playlist:
I’m a self-taught National Master in chess out of Pennsylvania, USA who was introduced to the game by my father in 1988 at the age of 8. The purpose of this channel is to share my knowledge of chess to help others improve their game. I enjoy continuing to improve my understanding of this great game, albeit slowly.
