On struggling for advantage

Feb 3, 2013, 2:43 AM |

Computer nowadays are good in calculating, they can calculate on move one unto mate but us humans can't do this and in fact must use our intuition on how to find advantage in chess to win some points.

Here I want to give you two kinds of advantage, the temporary and a long-term one.

Here are the long term advantages:

1. Better Pawn-Structure

2. Have Key Pieces, and a good position

3. Material Advantage

Here are the short term advantage:

1. Development Advantage

2. Initiative 

3. Opponent's weak king position



By knowing these types of advantage, we can easily know if our advantage is only a short term and can lose by a move or two; or long term one
