Each Bishop has it's own color, you have a black squared Bishop and a White squared Bishop. The bishops may be differentiated according to which wing they begin on, i.e. the king's bishop and queen's bishop. As a consequence of its diagonal movement, each bishop always remains on either the white or black squares, and so it is also common to refer to them as light-squared or dark-squared bishops.||0,0,4,0,32,4,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,132,0,160,132,0,0|1,1,3,0,targetmove.png,0,2,0,3,0,targetmove.png,0,1,3,3,0,targetmove.png,0,2,4,3,0,targetmove.png,0,3,5,3,0,targetmove.png,0,4,6,3,0,targetmove.png,0,5,7,3,0,targetmove.png,0,0,2,0,0,green_f.png,0,0,2,4,0,blue_overlay.png,0| The Bishops move in a diagonal along their color. They can move any number of squares. Bishops, like all other pieces except the knight, cannot jump over other pieces. A bishop captures by occupying the square on which an enemy piece sits.||0,0,0,0,32,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,0,1,0,1,4,0,0,0,0,0,1,0,1,0,0,0,129,0,129,0,0,1,0,129,0,129,0,129,0,0,1,0,132,0,0,0,129,129,129,0,0,0,0,160,0,0,0|0,3,3,0,targetmove.png,0,0,7,3,0,targetmove.png,0,1,4,3,0,targetmove.png,0,1,6,3,0,targetmove.png,0,3,4,3,0,targetmove.png,0,3,6,3,0,targetmove.png,0,4,3,2,1,targetattack.png,0,4,3,3,0,targetmove.png,0,4,7,3,0,targetmove.png,0,2,5,0,0,yellowhl.png,R| In the middle game, a player with only one bishop should place his pawns on squares of the color that the bishop cannot move to. This allows the player to control squares of both colors, and allows the bishop to move freely among the pawns, this helps fix enemy pawns on squares on which they can be attacked by the bishop. Such a bishop is often referred to as a "good" bishop. Here the white bishop is a "good" bishop and black because it is blocked by it's own pieces is in a bad position and is referred to as a "bad" bishop.||8,2,4,16,32,0,2,8,1,1,1,1,1,1,4,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,129,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,129,129,129,0,129,129,129,129,136,130,132,144,160,132,130,136|0,5,3,0,targetmove.png,0,2,5,3,0,targetmove.png,0,2,7,3,0,targetmove.png,0,3,4,3,0,targetmove.png,0,4,3,2,1,targetattack.png,0,4,3,3,0,targetmove.png,0,1,6,0,0,yellowhl.png,R|The Fianchetto (Italian for little flank): The finachetto is an opening move where the knights pawn is moved forward one or two squares and then the bishop is placed in front of the knight. This move gives the bishop a field of fire across the center of the board. If the king castles he is still protected from frontal attack. The exchanging of a finachettoed bishop should not be taken lightly especially king side as a hole is opened up weakening the the pawn structure.||8,2,0,16,32,0,2,8,1,4,1,1,1,1,4,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,1,0,0,1,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,132,129,0,0,0,0,0,0,129,0,129,129,129,129,129,129,136,130,0,144,160,132,130,136|1,6,4,0,yellow_overlay.png,0,1,1,4,0,yellow_overlay.png,0,5,0,4,0,yellow_overlay.png,0|Fianchetto (continued). This shows three different types of fianchetto. White's king's bishop is in a regular fianchetto. This is by far the most common type of fianchetto, seen in the Sicilian Dragon, Pirc Defense, Modern Defense, Modern Benoni, Grünfeld Defense and King's Indian Defense, among other openings. Whites queen's bishop is also fianchettoed, but the knight pawn has moved forward two squares, making this a long fianchetto. Blacks queen's bishop has moved out to a6 in what is sometimes called an extended fianchetto. Rather than control the long diagonal, it takes aim at whites e2 square.||0,0,0,0,32,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,4,0,0,130,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,0,160,0,0,0|2,6,3,0,targetmove.png,0,3,5,3,0,targetmove.png,0,5,5,3,0,targetmove.png,0,6,6,3,0,targetmove.png,0,4,7,0,0,yellowhl.png,R|Bishop vs Knight. The bishop is viewed as being equal to a knight. However a knight has advantages early in a game and the bishop as advantages latter in the game. In this example the black knight can not move without the white bishop capturing it. The knight is said to be dominated by the bishop.||
