A term used to describe the winning potential of one side or color in a game of chess usually based on the position of chess pieces on the board. When one side or color in a game of chess is winning the game, then that side is said to have the advantage, edge, pull, or plus. For example, a "clear advantage" (edge, pull, or plus) is enough to win with correct play, whereas a "slight edge" just offers better practical chances even though the players might draw the position with best play. A judgment of an advantage must consider complex criteria such as material (more pieces or pawns), space (more room to maneuver), activity (more influence of pieces), king safety (one side has a safer king than the other), or other weaknesses (backward pawn, etc.).
