I love chess endgames especially when I still have two bishops.

"Bishop vs Knight - Which one do you prefer?"

It depends on the position. If a knight finds a home deep in enemy territory that is a powerful knight.

In the endgame when the material is equal and when there are pawns on both sides of the board then 2 bishops should defeat a bishop & knight. I have won many games like this.

The bishops have the advantage in this endgame because they can get to the other side of the board in one move. However the knights are always dangerous. I use pawns to restrict the mobility of the knights.

When my opponent trades a bishop for my knight that's usually a good thing for me.
