Re: Two knights vs two same-colored bishops

With all material present two same-colored Bishops (the 'anti-pair') are equally strong as two Kights or Knight + Bishop, and about half a Pawn weaker than two Bishops on different shades.

So all you have to do is to let stockfish analyse a random position and open Process Lasso and let SF get hyperthreaded instead of real cores.
