Openingtrainer prepare development 3

Completing the development can be done in different ways. After the knights and bishops are activated, we want to navigate the rooks to (semi-)open lines. We usually play the knights to the center, but there are exceptions. Sometimes the path to the center is blocked, or you don't want to get in the way of another part. The bishops are even more flexible. The bishops can be arranged in many different ways. The optimal fields are different in each position.

Before the bishops can be activated, it is first necessary to create space. In this lesson you can start preparing for your development again.

The example shows an interesting case where the bishop works best on the long diagonal.
