Most people lose because they are still using the precomputer archaic point values of 955333311111111 for QRRBBNNPPPPPPPP when in fact it is 9.25, 5, 4.5, 3.75, 3.25,3, 2.5, .75, 1,1,1.25,1.25, 1,1,.75
first bishop traded loses 3.75, first R or N traded only loses 4.5 and 2.5 respectively because of the redundancy factor
rook pawns are a half point less than center pawns but gain a tenth of a point for each long range piece your opponent loses and center pawns lose that same tenth for each long range piece he loses.
