    The king, if you lose it your lost, you can play on whitout a bishop etc.

    Hmm I agree, but my personal favourite is the knight because it can fork many pieces at a time

    in one game it could the lowly Pawn, another a Knight delivering a smothered mate.

    And Yelena - you don't lose your King, the game is over before it gets taken off the board.

    The pawn is the soul of chess. -Philidor

    it's the only pieces whose every movement permanently changes the game.

    Tha's the point. The most important piece changes from game to game, from position to position.

    If you say Rook and I deliver mate with my Pawn while your Rook is pinned by my Bishop, how important is your Rook?

    numerically the lady rules the board, her man is strong but like lions in the wild he's lazy and she does all the work. Intuitively I vote for the Knight, only player that can jump in and out of danger while manuevering very crafty like a ninja in the night. I think with deep serious computer analaysis we will discover a Knight in a the middle of the board in the middle of the game is the most dangerous but everybody frawns on him. Until he puts them to sleep

    Well, the king obviously. If you ask me what's my favorite piece though, it's the bishop.
