Amateur's mind -- turning chess misconceptions into chess mastery

IM Jeremy Silman starts with this chess position and wants you to find out imbalances, in other words, "read" the board ...

Dzindzichasvili-Yermonlinsky, US Championship 1993: White to play [Figure out the imbalances]



Code:
FEN: rn2k2r/pppbqpb1/4p1pp/4P3/8/2NB1N2/PPP2PPP/R2Q1RK1 
You can load this FEN code in chessup.net and try variations visually (instead of mentally )

Re: Amateur's mind -- turning chess misconceptions into chess mastery

The List of imbalances that the author wants us to explore are:

(1) Minor Pieces -- the interplay between Bishops and Knights (trying to make one superior to the other)

(2) Pawn Structure -- a broad subject that encompasses doubled pawns, isolated pawns, backward pawns, passed pawns, etc.

(3) Space -- the annexation of territory on a chess board

(4) Material -- owning pieces of greater value than the opponent's

(5) Files and squares -- files, ranks, and diagonals act as pathways for your pieces, while squares act as homes. Whole plans can center around the domination of a file or the creation of a weak square in the enemy camp.

(6) Development -- a lead in development gives you more force in a specific area of the board. This is a temporary imbalance because the opponent will eventually catch up

(7) Initiative -- dictation the tempo of a game. This is also a temporary imbalance ...

Re: Amateur's mind -- turning chess misconceptions into chess mastery

Black has bishop pair while White doesn't. Black's black bishop is blocked by e5 pawn but that can be removed by advancing f7 pawn.
Black's knight is not developed at all vs White's both knights are out of back rank.

Pawn structure wise,black is better since white's e5 pawn is isolated from other pawns.

White has definitely much more space in center than black.That can prove critical.


ABout tempo,how can white grab it - that is a tough one.I need to analyse more.
