Knight moves

Knights are especially useful in making split moves, also called forks because they can target many different squares. Also, since knights have such eccentric movements, they can often pull off unexpected moves. Knights are the only pieces that can move on a player's first turn, besides the pawns, and are often brought out pretty early in the game. can easy mate the king by cornering the king

Algebraic notation Edit

Knights also have an unusual notation because the K was taken by the king so the N was used for the knight.
