Loose and -only- piece defenders is NOT(!) SAFE
Compiled by notyetagm
--*--

A <LOOSE> piece, a <LOOSE> pawn (Black e6-pawn, 27 ♗f5xe6+!: Kasparov vs Korchnoi, 1995 Black d6-pawn, 35 ♖d4xd6!: Petrosian vs Uhlmann, 1968 White g3-pawn, 60 ... ♗d6xg3!: Petrosian vs Larsen, 1966), or even a <LOOSE> square (d6-square, 48 d5-d6+!: Tarrasch vs E Thorold, 1890) that is defended -only- by piece defenders is <EQUIVALENT> to (i.e., <TRADES DOWN> to) a <LOOSE> or <UNDEFENDED> piece that can then be exploited tactically.

-Anything- that is <LOOSE> (piece, pawn, square) and has -only- piece defenders is equivalent to an <UNDEFENDED/LOOSE> piece and <LOOSE PIECES DROP OFF (LPDO)>.
