The PlayfulSquirrel is back with some Art Appreciation. This week he shows a game played by one of his favorite players...former World Champion Garry Kasparov. In the game, Kasparov happily trades an expensive rook for a lowly bishop. Why would he do such a thing? It turns out that "piece values" are a little trickier than the old "pawns are 1, knights and 3, rooks are 5, queens are..." The PlayfulSquirrel explains how pieces can be more or less valuable depending on how well they are placed. Enjoy the game!
After the Art has been Appreciated, the Squirrel puts on his boxing gloves to face off against ClammyGopher, purplepuppy123, and AshamedCrow. Will any of them snatch the coveted ChessKid prize T-shirt by defeating the Squirrel?
