The relative strengths of the Bishop and Knight have long been debated. Traditional thinking has been that the Bishop is better in open positions while the Knight is better in blocked positions. Top players differ in their views. Chigorin was a staunch advocate of the Knight, while Botvinnik was a master of the raking Bishops. Steve Mayer brings the reader practical examples to illustrate positions which favor one minor piece over the other and provides the first serious analysis of this long-debated topic. Some chapter titles are: The Problem Knight, The Problem Bishop, The over-rated Knight, The Ruy Lopez Ending, Shattered Pawn Positions.
