Understanding Material Imbalances by Svitlana Demchenko
One of the first lessons we are taught in the beginning of our chess journey is how much every piece on the board is “worth”. However, the more we master the game, the more we realize that the “true” value of pieces can differ from their theoretical value, depending on the subtleties of the position. When faced with material imbalances, it can be challenging to come to a correct evaluation and decide which plans to pursue. This DVD focuses on several types of material imbalances, such as Rook vs 2 Pieces, Queen vs 2 Rooks, and Queen vs Pieces. In this series, you will learn some general guidelines, explore model games played by the best players in the world, and test your knowledge through practice positions
