Go to the last move... The computer says that I, as white, have a score of 10.34. I have no clue how to capitalize on this position. The game was timed so I offered the draw. Any ideas would be really helpful. Thanks.
you could always try to hold up as black and see how the computer breaks it.
Oh I see because its check... I either win the bishop or it becomes certian that I can queen my d pawn. Thanks a lot folks!
I think is a way to give values to a position... 1 pawn = 1pt.... a knight or bishop = 3 pts. a rook 5... the rest is about position and such. So according to the computer my position is better than being up a queen. I wasnt seeing why that was so I asking for some help to figure it out. A few folks above did. Super helpful.
So, there is a score for each piece(well known to all) and a score for position? And computer gives to white better score position than black??
it's a general score to your position ... if most often if it's a positive score it means advantage for white and a negative score is advantage for black . usually a score of above 1.00 is already a decisive advantage and white should win with correct play , a score of 10.00 is a resignable position for black .
It's Bxe4 winning for white
you missed it
Get on the tactics trainer every day. You would see this move if you did.
ha ha ha well said
but it is better if u practise on actual board...
