One point for each reachable square + one point per supporting piece - one point for per defending piece.


Healthy holidays to us all :)

Hmm, I'm not clear on the difference between supporting and defending. Is this your idea, KL. It seems interesting. I remember reading Averbahk's Advanced Tactics book years ago. One of the main ideas was to count the "contacts" i.e. the number of pieces and squares attacked. His basic idea was that if the number of contacts exceeded that of your opponent, then there may be a tactic in the position.
