How to Checkmate with Knight and Bishop | Chess Endgame Basics #1

advanced
GM Huschenbeth Endgame Bishop Knight Advanced

In this video I show you the technique how to checkmate with knight and bishop the opposing king. This video is part of my new series "Chess Endgame Basics" in which I show you elementary endgame positions and how to handle them correctly. The endgame is an important part of the chess game and the right knowledge can often make the difference between losing and drawing or drawing and winning. Enjoy watching!

There are two things I would like you to take from this video:

1. Drive the opposing king to the corner of the board which has the same color as your bishop.

2. Once you got the king to the edge of the board, perform the W-maneuver with your knight and drive the king to the right corner.
