and win the two bishop endgame. What I am going to show you is the most simplest
and easiest method. Keep in mind that you need to mate your opponent
within 50 moves otherwise its a draw so don’t waste any time and plan accordingly. Okay so let’s start. Let’s take any random position like this. The first step is to position your bishops
in such a way that they control these 4 important central squares. So how do you that? Well, it’s simple. First, let’s Move our dark squared bishop
to b2 to give check. As you can see, we have got control of the
d4 and e5 squares. Now you will play bishop to g2 to gain control
of the e4 and d5 squares. It’s check, so black will again have to move
away from the center. That’s Step 1 complete. Now our next step would be to occupy the center
with our bishops. So basically you need to get both your bishops
onto any of these 4 squares. So first, let’s play bishop to d4. If black plays king to f4, then you occupy
the center by playing bishop to d5 and if black plays king to e6, then you play bishop
to e4. You are done with Step 2. NOW If you look at the board carefully, you
will notice that we have blocked these diagonals with our bishops and hence the black king
is now restricted to only these 12 squares. Now our next step would be to bring our king
close to our bishops. The main idea here is to use YOUR king to
push the enemy king into a corner. In this case, you need to bring your king
to either c5 or f5. Remember that if you bring your king to c5,
then your bishops will move this way and if you bring your king to f5, then your bishops
will move this way. So basically your bishops will move in the
opposite direction. Let me show you how this works. Let’s bring our King to c5 first. So let’s just go fast. As you can see, the BLACK king is preventing
us from taking the c5 square. So we will play a waiting move and now AFTER
black moves, we can take that square. Step 3 is now complete. As I told you earlier, the next step is to
move your bishops in this direction since our king is on c5. As you can see, again the black king is preventing
our bishops from moving forward so we will play a waiting move with our king. Once the black king steps back, then we can
move our bishops. The tricky part HERE is to know which bishop
to move first. Well, the logic is simple. Just make sure that the black king should
never be in a position to attack any of your bishops on its next move. Say, for example, if you move this bishop
first, then black can easily attack it on its next move. So the correct move would be to play this
bishop first. Now it does not matter what move black plays. In any case, you are going to play bishop
to e5. Our bishops are now getting closer to the
king. If you look at the board, you will see that
the black king is left with only 6 squares to play with. Our next step would again be to repeat the
same process. Get your king to either d6 or g6 and then
move the bishops in the opposite direction. If king to d6, then move your bishops this
way and if king to g6, then move your bishops this way. So we play king d5, waiting move. Then once the black king steps away, we play
king d6. It is Black’s turn so he will play king e8. Now shift the bishops. Bishop to f6 can be attacked by black so we
will first play bishop g6 check. From here, black has 2 options. He can either go this way or this way. If he goes this side, then bishop f6 check. Black has no option so he has to move his
king to c8. Then we play king c6. Again, black has no option except B8. We will now play King B6. Now black can go either a8 or c8. No matter what move he plays, your moves are
going to be the same. You will first block the c8 square by playing
bishop f5, then you will block the B8 square by playing bishop e5 and finally you will
block a8 by playing bishop e4. Let me show you. After king a8, bishop f5. Then king B8 and bishop e5 check. King a8 and bishop e4 checkmate. Now if king c8, then bishop f5 check. King B8 and bishop e5 check. Finally, king goes to a8 and bishop e4 checkmate. Now lets just go back to this position and
see the other variation. From here, if the black king goes this way,
then you will bring your bishop to f6. As you can see, the black king is now left
with only 2 squares. Our next plan of action would be to position
our king on the h6 square. After this, we need to push the black king
into the corner so we will free the corner square and block the f8 square by playing
bishop to e7. Now black has to play king h8. The king is now trapped and restricted to
only these 2 corner squares. What you now need to do is to block the g8
square with your bishop. But you can’t do that right away because if
you play bishop f7 then it would result in a stalemate or a draw since black will have
no legal moves. So be careful, you will have to play a waiting
move here. Let’s play bishop f5. Then after king g8, you will play bishop e6
check. Finally, king h8 and bishop f6 checkmate. So that’s it guys, hope you enjoyed this chess
