    It talks about how the value of positions and material based on a pawn being equal to one. Quite interesting but maybe not worth anything in terms of getting better at this wonderful game.

    Thanks. I thought that was really interesting, even if it did hurt my head some.

    More stuff for us to try and remember!

    The Q vs BBN was recently tested in Shirov vs Carlsen.

    round 3.

    the 3 minors had a distinct advantage but couldn't force home the point and the 50 move rule decided a draw in the end.
