Knight v. Bad Bishop

One of Malaysian Chess Blogger use nick name as ‘Bad Bishop’ (see here). I do not know why he uses this nick name, but as far as I know, the term ‘Bad Bishop’ in game of chess refers to a bishop which lack of mobility normally hindered / hammed by its own pawns.

Below are some the games which shows how bad is bishop in certain positions and how knight is more powerful to exploit the positions. Hopefully the games below can give us some knowledge on judgment and planning in chess.
