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 .
Get on the tactics trainer every day. You would see this move if you did.
