What I Needed Ken To Clarify,
[+] Qualitative Pawn Majority


(GW) What I needed Ken to clarify ...

Qualitative Pawn Majority

  • ? "Qualitative" needs defining.

  • ... however, I understand the Pawn Majority tag, which refers to, for example, 3 Pawns v. 2 enemy Pawns, or 2 central Pawns v. 1 enemy central Pawn.

Ken's Comments ...

"Qualitative" means looking at both sides, and seeing which side has the least weakness (think weak pawns). If both sides have 4 pawns, but one side has doubled, or other weak pawns, then the better side with 4 pawns would have the "qualitative" majority.
