Save hours of head-scratching and uncertainty in your own games and understand why the masters make the moves they do: *The worst square for a White knight is b.2. *With rook vs. two knights, exchanging queens is worth a pawn. *Never capture the b.2 pawn with the queen. *Rooks united on the seventh are blind pigs. *The winner is the one who commits the next-to-last mistake.
