Hardly any moment distinguishes a strong player from an inexperienced player as much as the moment of exchange. In chess, there are thousands of exceptions to the rules. Nevertheless, we must know the most important rules and patterns. Only then can we apply them - or break them at the right moment, with the right reason.

13 guidelines for exchange:

  1. What matters is what stays on the board.
  2. The crucial question is: who will benefit more from the exchange?
  3. A key advantage of the pair of runners is being able to swap the right runner at the right moment.
  4. ALWAYS consider the tactical elements.
  5. Those who have less space usually benefit more from the exchange.
  6. The principle of the supernumerary figure
  7. Can I exchange a poorly placed piece of mine for a good one of my opponent's?
  8. Can I swap out important attackers/defenders of the opponent?
  9. Prophylaxis during exchange operations
  10. Consider the time factor.
  11. Can I change the pawn structure advantageously by exchanging pieces?
  12. Will the exchange help me to exploit the advantages?
  13. Can I transition to a favorable endgame?
  14. Maximum concentration on the exchange of ladies
