Up Topic Correspondence Chess / Correspondence Chess / Endgame with a pawn up
- By Hamster (**) [at] Date 2013-10-04 20:16
In correspondence chess games winning a pawn is often a very difficult feat but even with
a pawn up it is by no means certain that the game can be won. Of course the result depends
on the placement of the pieces but in a "general case" - which endgames are better for the
stronger side if there is a piece in the red circle?



Only pawns is best and many of those games are won. On the other hand with opposite
colored bishops a draw is likely as is the case with rooks most of the time. How is with
bishops (same color), knights or queens?

Just for reference a table with computer evaluations of some engines (only about 1m/pos).
