Descripción

The Secret Life of Bad Bishops The Bad Bishop is a notorious villain in chess, but often a

perfectly respectable bishop is falsely accused.

The Secret Life of Bad Bishops takes an in-depth look at the bishop – not just dealing with good

and bad bishops but also more nuanced cases where a “double-edged bishop” could turn out to be a

game-winning hero or a fatal liability. All phases of chess are covered, from opening to middlegame to endgame.

The final two chapters test the reader’s newly enhanced understanding with carefully chosen

exercises and instructive solutions.

Esben Lund, an International Master from Denmark, is a respected author and coach. His first

book for Quality Chess, Rook vs. Two Minor Pieces, earned excellent reviews.

 

“The concept of the ‘bad bishop’ has always been confusing and even divisive… Lund resolves this

problem by coining a new term: the ‘Double-Edged Bishop’, which he defines as ‘a bishop that cannot

yet be declared as good or bad, but rather holds the potential of becoming good as well as the risk of becoming bad’.

The Secret Life of Bad Bishops

When I read this, I was very happy! It’s one of those wonderful moments when something you have

understood intuitively is explained clearly and concisely and a little part of chess suddenly makes a

bit more conscious sense.”

 

“I found the selection of games and positions to be well-chosen and it was clear that the author had

expended considerable effort to carefully review the material and build upon examples given earlier

in the book. IM Esben Lund has broken new ground with a thought-provoking book on an under-

represented topic in chess literature – the evaluation of positions featuring “Double-edged bishops”.

This book will be helpful for players rated between 1800- 2400 – stronger players could also benefit

from being able to review many of these ideas and concepts in a single volume.”
