How to Exchange Pieces
by Elisabeth Pähtz

Which pieces to keep and which to exchange is one of the most important questions in chess. This is true in the opening, the middlegame and the endgame. Less experienced players often think exchanging means to swap pieces of equal value and fail to take strategic factors into account. Of course, you have to keep the material balance in mind but it is crucial to realize how exchanges affect the position. The "feeling" for the right exchange – players like Capablanca or Karpov were unrivaled masters of this art – is something a chess player has to develop over time. This video wants to help to develop this feeling. On this video I want to pursue the questions related to exchanging and to answer these questions with the help of instructive games to develop a feeling for the right exchange. I divided my lecture into four parts:

1) Structural aspects of an exchange
2) Exchanging when attacking or defending
3) Exchanging to realize an advantage
4) The exchange of Queens

To exchange or not to exchange: that is the question!

• Video running time: 4 hours 35 minutes (English)
• With interactive training including video feedback
• 2 CBM articles about the exchange
• Including CB 12 – Reader
