Vera Menchik thought she could draw against the great Capablance by exchanging pieces and going into a drawish endgame. She didn't realize that Capablanca was very, very good at endgames! The general idea in exchanging pieces is to gain some advantage, even a small advantage, just one pawn for example,  can give you a winning endgame.
