Great opposite coloured Bishops endings
Compiled by capanegra
--*--

Endings with bishops of opposite colour are notorious for their drawish character. They are often drawn even when one side has a two pawn advantage. However, under some circumstances, the position allows a win for the strongest side, only if he plays with high accuracy.
