Knight better than a bishop
Compiled by YouRang
--*--

Games where I found that a Knight outperformed a bishop in a direct match, and consequently determined the outcome of the game.

Game turns in Winawer's favor when position becomes closed.

(B40) Sicilian, 65 moves, 1-0

Polgar's knight at the end dominates Adam's K+B
