Home * Chess * Tactics * Loose Piece

A loose piece is a piece not defended by own man. Loose pieces and undefended pawns, even if actually not attacked and therefor en prise, may be considered in evaluation, specially if there are more than one or even two per side, and the opponent has forces and possibilities for double attacks and knight forks. Game phase, an exposed king and the presence of the opponent queen can be considered as well in that evaluation term.
