The white knight

This are my two cents opinion

Don’t take them to heart rather take them with salt as the stew

The knight is a piece on the chess table. It is categorised as one of the weakest pieces with 3 points the equivalent of 3 pawns.

I being a fucker for underdogs, today am championing for the white knight assuming all facts about chess. Don’t underestimate my game because of this opinion.

Why the white knight and not the black knight?

We will come to that soon.

The white knight is my most valued piece on the chess board.( 1st Big lie)

Many an opponent have found themselves entrapped, subdued and reduced into checkmate in a few when I bring this piece into play.(2nd small lie)

When it comes to the knight,most players underestimate it. This is simply because the knight is unassuming.

When the knight moves,it’s moves seem almost erratic.

As if lacking of purpose.


I don’t know if it’s its stature, which is artistically erect and poised that makes it come across as unthreatening.

But assume it at your own peril.

I love this piece because of its Arsenal, remember I told you it’s moves are erratic. Because of this, the knight is the only piece when in play,YOU CANNOT BLOCK with your pieces.

Once it entraps lets say two or more of your pieces, keeping in mind that you can’t block it, you are subdued into sacrificing a piece. It’s unstoppable, maniac in its attack.

A force to reckon with. When it takes one it’s most probably poised to wipe another of your pieces off the chessboard in the next play if the opponent is not strategic.

“The difference between a master and a novice..The master has lost more times than the novice has played.”

Another of its arsenal, the Knight seems to have a magical power to me.

It seems as if it has an invincible clock that renders it almost invisible to the opponent.

What do I mean?

Draw for instance the Queen or the Castle and bring them into play,your opponents mind moves into overdrive,they wonder about your next move of the mentioned pieces and come with contingencies to prevent elimination of their valuable pieces. Hard to pull a first one and surprise your opponent with the pre mentioned pieces.

Trust me, bringing a knight into play does not induce the same effect on an opponents mind. Their alertness stays shallow and their guard not hightened.

Even when you move a knight in close proximity to their king as long as you are not in check,the opponent seems unbothered as if mind clogged. Seeing the loaning checkmate an impossibility.

Then boom,the surprise comes. A wrong move from the opponent and opportunity scenario presents itself. The knight moves entrapping the opponent and it’s checkmate baby. They king is immobilized, they can’t block a knight and it happens the angels are smiling at you so neither can they capture your knight.

And it goes without saying,you have your first win

Master the knight,bring it into play more often and you are on your way to never loosing a game.

To the first question at the start of this blog..Why the white knight? Well, every chess player prefers white because it starts the game. Always threatening and dictating the course of the game. Nothing to do with colour or any other myth.

Yours sincerely,
The introvert chess master
