Different setup and castling rules. (10x8, Cells: 80) [All Comments] [Add Comment or Rating]Hans Aberg wrote on 2008-04-29 UTCH.G.Muller: | Larry Kaufman has applied the method on (pre-existing) Human | Grand-Master games, to determine piece values for 8x8 Chess. If I look at: http://home.comcast.net/~danheisman/Articles/evaluation_of_material_imbalance.htm he says things like: [...] an unpaired bishop and knight are of equal value [...], so positional considerations [...] will decide which piece is better. and also see the section 'Applications'. In other words, he is using a statistical approach merely as a point of departure for developing a theory which combines point values with other reasoning, such as positional judgement. The values he gives though are interesting: P=1, N=3¼, B=3¼, BB=+½, R=5, Q=9¾ where BB is the bishop pair.
