Training Positions – Level 6
Level 6 is the weakest level for beginners and advanced chess players. I will create games for up to level 1…which will be the strongest level.
Level 6 means YOU have an advantage of 6 pawns. This has been estimated by one of the strongest chess programs worldwide. As you should know that an advantage in chess is measured in pawn units.
An advantage of 6 pawns does not necessarily mean that you are always 6 pawns up, but this advantage can consist of other factors. You might have an additional lightpiece, a knight or bishop. This would count 3 pawns, depending on the position of course.
For example: If you are a bishop up, but this bishop is blocked in completely and is just a dead duck, then advantage level might be reduced to one pawn only for this particular bishop. But as you always have a 6 pawn advantage, in this case you will have additional pawns or other positional advantages to make for a 6-pawn-advantage alltogether.
Training Positions – Level 5
You certainly know by now that level 5 means that you have a 5-Pawn-Advantage. This is still a big advantage but a bit lower than you have at level 6. However, an average club player will win these positions so you are expected to win these games below. I wish you good luck. I think if you try it often enough your chess will improve and finally you will win…
