Default Zercher Squat with Barbell Questions

Hi All;

I have 2 questions regarding Zercher Squats with a barbell:

1. What is the relation of a 1RM with a Zercher Squat as opposed to either a Front Squat or Back Squat? about the same, higher or lower 1RM?

2. What is the benefit of Zercher Squats? I've read they may help better with core strength.

Thanks for the help.

Bill
