A bishop captures by occupying the square on which an enemy piece sits.
Less experienced players tend to underrate the bishop compared to the knight because the knight can reach all squares and is more adept at forking.
More experienced players understand the power of the bishop.
Bishops usually gain in relative strength towards the endgame as more pieces are captured and more open lines become available on which they can operate.
