Classic demonstration of the power of bishop pair by Wilhelm Steinitz

Each of us have heard about the power of bishop pair. In the open positions the bishop pair is much more valuable that pair of knights or bishop and knight. It seems to be clear.

But sometimes all of us may have problems to apply the bishop pair advantage.

Let’s look at the classic game where we can watch how precisely Wilhelm Steinitz (the first World Champion) demonstrated the power of bishop pair. Steinitz slowly limited white’s pieces (especially the knight) and turned the position into won for black pieces.

Is not it easy? ;) When you know how to play, of course ;)
