About the Course

In the opposite colored bishops, each side has a single bishop who reside on opposite colored squares and thus cannot attack or block each other.

Without other pieces (but with pawns) these endings have a tendency to result in a draw. These are some of the most difficult endings in which to convert a small material advantage to a win is not an easy task!
