  • Game 3: Rimuel vs Stachu71 [Thematic]

    1.e4 e6 2.d4 d5 3. Nc3



    Hello Statue .

    1. White has the classical centre which leads to more space and is up one piece in development. But White's e4 and d4 pawns are potential targets for Black.

    2. Black has a more solid pawn structure with no visible weaknesses. However, Black hems in his LSB and has less control over the centre which leads to less space.

                about equal. You would take the bishop?

                  1. White has a pair of Bishops and the semi-open b-file, at the cost of a compromised pawn structure which leads to targets on the isolated a3, c3, d4, e5, and White is down a piece in development. White has more space on the Kingside.

                  2. There are no targets in Black's position due to the solid pawn structure, and he is up in development. He has targets, the weakest one being the pawn on c3. One potential weakness is the hanging c5 pawn (but it cannot be taken right now) and if Black castles short, the h7 pawn. As usual, the LSB might not see any light any time soon. Black has more space on the Queenside.


                  With all these considerations, White should find open diagonals for the Bishops, preferably aiming at the Kingside, and attack on the Kingside, while maintaining the safety of his pawns. Black should develop more of his pieces while tying down White's pieces to the defense of the pawns. He should try to counterattack on the Queenside.

                  8.Rb1



                  Note: About equal doesn't say much XD. I don't even understand how people evaluate that.

                    About equal means about 0.00 (this is how eval. is normally given). The number is the material balance; the only thing that you can actually attribute a number to. You can't turn attacking prowess into number, nor can you turn time into number. In other words, this way simplifies the evaluation to material balance and quality of the position (space ,passed pawns etc.) and leaves the rest to your interpretation. For example, if the eval. is +2.00 it means that white is/will be 2 points ahead (roughly two pawns); if white is fiercely attacking, he currently may even be down in material, but in the end he'll get it back (the attack will create too many threats and the defender won't be able to hold everything).

                      Black decides to shut down my LSB's space and make the c3 pawn a permanent target. White could try to trade his bad Bishop for the more active Knight on e7, but that would usher the game closer to an endgame, which is not so good for White. Furthermore, the pawns a3 and c3 become even weaker.
