Most of the time, we cannot checkmate our opponent and we have
to find some other ideas.
In this position, White has a material
advantage of 5 points (an extra rook). Apart from the Rook,
both sides have the same material (3 pawns and a Bishop each). An
experienced player would find this game so easy to win that his
opponent would probably resign. However, there is a lot of work
to be done before White can hope to checkmate Black.
