I've seen on an internet chess chat site a Canadian Candidate Master claim that (in at least one of the three main variants of Progressive Chess, if not all), Black has a slight advantage, if playing 1...d6 + 2...Nf6 against most White first moves,

In trying to tentatively estimate the value of the pieces in Progressive Chess (in its main variants), I'd guess that the long range pieces may be generally worth, say, one and a half times what I give them as in standard chess. Thus: P=1; N=3.49; B=5.25; R=8.25; Q=15 and the fighting value of K=4 (though naturally it cannot be traded).
