About This Video:

Bishops endings in chess are relatively straightforward most of the time. A lot of times opposite colored bishop endings are drawish, but there are a few tricks to be aware of. In this video I go over some of the fundamental bishop endings that beginners and intermediate players should be aware of. and amazon links are affiliate links.


  1. Thanks a lot for all the crash course endgames Videos, all the sudden everything has become so clear and easy, all makes sense! So well explained!

  2. Very instructive!! Thanks for sharing!!

  3. Got this recommended on a day where the daily puzzle is a opposite color bishops ending

  4. Nice 🙂 good for beginners :)Explaining wise you are a good teacher… keep going…

  5. Chess game of kings, in my humble opion, bishop and king and pawn endings are the most important part of the game, if you've got he opening covered, and got a basic grasp of the middle game. Correct me if i am wrong.

  6. Just found about this channel and I can't stop watching extremely underrated

  7. Make a video on caro kann defence all variation

  8. Very good and short video for beginners like me, deserves more views

  9. That 2nd 1000 subs is coming a lot faster than the 1st 1000 ha? Keep it up, with content like this it will keep snowballing. 10k before you know it for sure.


  11. Man. I just cant stop watching ur videos

  12. Found this channel a couple of days ago, extremely underrated. You are a good teacher !!!

  13. At 7:40, as long as black's king or bishop guards c6, you cannot take those pawns without entering check yourself.

  14. Wish I'd watched this earlier. Very clear and concise.

  15. At 2:23, couldn't we use pawn and king strategy that you showed in earlier video? Or is it because here the pawn is in the last row and king is blocking the corner? So the king and pawn strategy doesn't work when king is blocking the corner?

  16. I kinda thought this would include mates involving bishops, but this is good too.

  17. 0:28 stalemate well the bishop is in the white
    squares and the black queen is in the dark squares lol haha

  18. 9:45 would be funny if it's queen/rook/king v king and the queen/rook/king guy resigns because king guy had the better king placement

  19. do you have any videos on "Bishop Pairs?" I hear a lot about the advantage of having bishop pairs, and how strong they are, but I'd love to have a video from you talking about how to use them best, and what their best strategies are, why they work so well together, etc.?

  20. Do you have video about the advantage of bishop pair?

  21. 10:18 c4 was pretty important here. If Bg3 before c4, then Black can play Bd7, White attacks the backward pawn with Bc7, but then b5 and it's defended by the bishop, axb5, Bxb5, and there isn't another pawn defending.

  22. not always
    5k2/8/7P/8/8/8/8/K6B w – – 0 1
    Bd5 wins the game because you are cutting off the enemy king
