Positions with Imbalances: Most club players think that ‘imbalances’ is an advanced concept that only Grandmasters understand. It can’t be further from the truth.
Imbalance simply means that the material on the board isn’t equal.
Positions like Two Rook vs. Queen, Two Minor Pieces vs. Rook, or Three Minor Pieces vs. Queen are all considered imbalanced positions.
Those are very common and if you are looking to raise your rating above 1400, you’ll need to understand how to play it.
FM Viktor Neustorev is here with a blueprint for playing the 3 very important themes when it comes to imbalances:
- You are up in material
- You are down in material
- Material is equal
Just master those 3, are you’ll be on your way to the next rating bracket in no time!
