Bishop versus Knight is the most common minor piece endgame.
A Bishop is considered to be better in 60% of all Bishop vs Knight end games.
The Bishop is very strong when there are pawn isles spread over the board. It is also easier to exploit positional weaknesses with the long range Bishop. The Knight prefers a central outpost and long pawn chains with pawns on same files.
