    Here is my proposed order, please add to the list and rearrange the order as you see fit ...... I am especially interested in the pawn odds games and where they fit

    Queen Odds
    Rook Odds
    Knight Odds
    Bishop Odds
    Pawn Odds (which pawn(s)?)
    No Castling Odds


    - oops wrong forum again i guess, feel free to move it around, perhaps give it a day or two here, next it could go to the debates forum, then maybe the chess forum for burial.

    I would switch the order of bisjops odds vs. knights odds, just because a bishop is more often than not, a bit superior to a knight. And the "two bishops" advantage is a pretty coveted one in grandmaster circles.

    when i have played bishop odds - against players with less strategic knowledge than me of course, i simple exchange our two like coloured bishops, then clog up the other colour with the opponents pawns and also to a lesser extent, my pawns.
    i find knight odds not so convenient.
