"How much is a pawn worth? When I was first learning the game I read that 3 tempi is equivalent to a pawn. Or a Rook on the 7th rank was worth a pawn and is enough to draw many otherwise inferior endings. Or sometimes having the initative is worth a pawn . . . especially if you can later get the attack. And finally, sometimes a pawn is a good investment if you can get 2 active Bishops (the Bishop Pair). Whatever your take on it, you have to remember that it is your pawn after all, and you should not give it up unless you feel comfortable with the type of compensation you get in return for it."
