Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-10-03  Rookpawn: Mr. Steintitz's annotation refers to a "majority of pawns on the queenside." This is considered an endgame advantage if both kings are on the kingside. With a majority, one can often create a passed pawn; thus compelling the opposing king to lose time in preventing its queening.
Mar-10-03  ughaibu: On the negative side a queenside majority can lead to a middlegame disadvantage as it can serve as an object for a minority attack leading to an isolated pawn. This strategy is not suitable for the kingside if both kings are castled short.
Mar-10-03  Rookpawn: In the middlegame, a kingside or central majority is usually preferabe. This can permit either domination in the center or a powerful attack.
