Blitz Adventures #32: Bishop Power!

This was a game in the QGA where Black played 3…Nc3 too early and blocked the c5 pawn from the typical break, Black also traded the dark squared Bishop for the Knight on c3 allowing me to place my dark Bishop on a3 and prevent castling.

The advantage of two Bishops is clear in the middle game, they controlled the majority of the Blacks pieces until I was able to win an exchange taking Blacks rook for Bishop. The remaining Bishop was a constant threat from a distance to the Black King and eventually was the piece that gave Mate.
