[Event "How Does a Horse Move In Chess?: Knight Movement, Example 1"] [Site "https://lichess.org/study/kfwBxeWY/wwNM39RF"] [Result "*"] [UTCDate "2023.05.31"] [UTCTime "17:14:37"] [Variant "Standard"] [ECO "?"] [Opening "?"] [Annotator "https://lichess.org/@/Juggernaunt"] [Source "https://lichess.org/study/kfwBxeWY/wwNM39RF"] [Orientation "white"] { At the start of the game, both sides have two knights, one on each flank. From White's point of view, the b1-knight can move to a3 and c3 and the g1-knight can move to f3 or h3. If both the knight from b1 moves to c3 and the other knight from g1 (in its respective turn) moves to f3, these are the best moves because both knights would be centralized. And you can see how they increase the number of squares to which they can move. That is why centralization is important. } { [%csl Gg1,Gb1,Bf3,Gc3][%cal Gb1c3,Gg1f3,Gg1h3,Gb1a3,Yc3d5,Yc3b5,Yc3a4,Yc3e4,Bf3e5,Bf3g5,Bf3h4,Bf3d4] } *
