This is the first example from Opening exercises Level A2 . The audio says this move is worth 17.5 points. It must be simply that it influences 17.5 points on the board as a whole. Is there anyone who could comment a bit more on this situation and counting positions like this in general?

Thank you.

Guo Juan If we go too deep into the details of this 17,5 points, we all get crazy :)
In Step by step course, from lesson 12, I started to teach some basics about how to count points on the end game moves. I believe these very basic counting methods will help us to start count correctly.
