PUNISH The Most Common Mistake After Bg4 PIN on Knight

Today I’d like to address one of the common questions students ask me, which is “What to do if my opponent trades their bishop for my knight?“.

This common scenario happens across various different openings, especially when your opponent pins your knight with their bishop by playing Bg4 or Bg5.

Most chess players have a common misunderstanding that trading a bishop for a knight is considered an equal exchange. However, it’s not.

In this video lesson, you will learn exactly how to punish this common opening mistake, how to exploit this bad trade, and how to target your opponents weak squares and win.

Below, you can find the examples shown in the video:
