Definitions for "Bishop Pair"
To possess two Bishops versus the opponent’s Bishop and Knight or two Knights. Two Bishops work extremely well together and are usually an advantage in open positions.
Situation when you retain both bishops, while your opponent has a bishop and knight, or even two knights. The "bishop pair" is considered better, especially when the board is relatively uncluttered with other pieces.
If both bishops on the same side survive late into a game of chess, then their value is enhanced for two reasons. Together they can attack a piece on any color square. Their mobility is usually less restricted by pawns late in the game. Therefore, a bishop pair is a notable advantage. Category: Glossary 1 visitor(s) thought this was helpful. Do you
