Why it’s a bad idea to give up fianchettoed bishop

This game is a perfect example of why exchanging fianchettoed bishops for knights is a bad idea. If you really have to do it, at least make sure that your king has an extra layer of protection. Speaking from my own personal experience of course.

You leave your king with a big hole in front of him. Then your opponent’s Queen and Bishop can attack it.
