    Chess strategies:

    Other things being equal, the side that controls more space on the board has an advantage.

    Control of the center is important because tactical battles often take place around the central squares, from where pieces can access most of the board. Center control allows more movement and more possibility for attack and defense.

    Chess tactics:

    A discovered attack is a move which allows an attack by another piece. A piece is moved away so as to allow the attack of a friendly bishop, rook or queen on an enemy piece.

    A fork is a move that uses one piece to attack two or more of the opponent's pieces simultaneously, hoping to achieve material advantage, since the opponent can only counter one of the two threats.

    A pin is a move which forces one of the opponent's pieces to stay put because moving it would expose a more valuable piece behind it.

    A skewer is a move which attacks two pieces in a line, similar to a pin, except that the enemy piece of greater value is in front of the piece of lesser value.

    Chess special moves:

    Castling consists of moving the king two squares along the first rank toward a rook and then placing the rook on the last square the king has just crossed.

    When a pawn advances two squares from its starting position and there is an opponent's pawn on an adjacent file next to its destination square, then the opponent's pawn can capture it in passing, and move to the square the pawn passed over.

    When a pawn advances to the eighth rank, as a part of the move it is promoted and must be exchanged for the player's choice of queen, rook, bishop, or knight of the same color.

    When a king is under immediate attack by one or two of the opponent's pieces, it is said to be in check. A response to a check is a legal move if it results in a position where the king is no longer under direct attack.

    Chess pieces:
    King, Queen, Bishop, Rook, Knight, Pawn.
