If you are going to have a game of Chess you can do anything you want its your board your pieces and your move, 1 big skill I learned from the Samurai is the art of sacrifice, I hate my horses so they are a prime target for sacrifice especially if I can get a Bishop.I was given a book as a youngun, Bobby Fischers 60 greatest games.
I played through these games, and never understood the subtlety in a lot of Fischer's moves until the book explained it.
This game was like that, except there was no book.
If your opponent is focused on taking your pieces throwing a piece they cannot take in to the mix will confuse it and it will surely make a rash stupid move.Aye. The side the king starts on.
