GW-KW, Point Count Chess Raw Discussion, File #7:
Part of the Advanced Beginner's Chess Guide (Section 2)
(KW, June 3rd) Let's look at another example from a game with my son (fatjonny, although he is anything but fat; he does rock climbing, jogging, volleyball, and other sports regularly, and his upper body shows it).

So KnightBishop seems as close as I can get to some of my qualities in the chess world.). I think it illustrates Weak Square Complexes, as well as Planning and Control of the Center.
