This video is broken down into specific aspects of the art of exchanging pieces and will help you make better decisions in your own critical moments at the board.
Positional Compensation: Active Pieces
Grandmaster Dejan Bojkov reviews a game played by Nana Dzagnidze. After sacrificing an exchange, her pieces gained superpowers and they never looked back!
This interesting demonstration provides proof that the Bishop pair can provide more than enough compensation against the Rook and Knight tandem. After a brilliant pawn move at a critical moment, Nana was able to beat Super-GM Vallejo-Pons in style.
The Active King in Bishop Endgames
Bishops are too fast for a King to catch them, but throw some pawns in their way… and the King will walk all over them!
GM Dejan Bojkov explains exactly how, first providing a couple of creative “Opposite Colored” Bishop examples, and ending with an amazing practical game designed to show the true power of a King and his passed pawns.
There’s a reason why the King has the best seat in the house, and the bishops are always by his side!
Dejan’s unique coaching style helps you make the ideas stick in your long-term memory by illustrating everything with real-world practical examples, including games by World Champions from Capablanca to Carlsen!
