    A rook on eight is named nate
    A knight on eight is great
    A knight on the wall is named paul
    A bishop in trouble is worth double

    If you live by these simple rules, you will never lose a game of chess.

    So if I send a rook and knight to my opponent's back rank asap,sac the other knight and glue it to the wall and then get my bishops into trouble I will win?

    will try it sometime

    A Knight on the 6th is like a bone in the throat.

    a pinned queen to the king, guarantees your king.
