Mating with two bishops is a
little more complicated but not to worry, it's not that hard.
It follows the same concept
as the other checkmating patterns : the king which is about to be checkmated
is slowly pushed towards the edge of the board were it gets finally 'executed'.
Unlike checkmating with the rook were you had to lead the king towards a line
at the edge of the board, when checkmating with two bishops the king will be
pushed towards a corner of the board. This can only happen if the two bishops
work together with their king.( When on two sided diagonals the two
bishops produces a barrier in front of the opposing king)
This were just a few simple
checkmating patterns that may occur in endgames.
Now we are going to take a look
at checkmating patterns that may occur somewhere else than the end game.
This are quite often among beginners so by knowing them you will learn how
to avoid them or how to apply them in your game.
