    One of the most argued subjects amoung begginers is 'which is better, the knight, or the bishop?'. Well, the awnser is: which ever you are more skilled with. Personally, I think that each piece has its own perks. The bishop can generally move move spaces per move. The knight moves much slower. The knight is the only piece that can jump over other pieces. It can also reach angles that no other piece can. The bishop can come out of nowhere and attack diagonelly. But the BIG plus on the knight arguement is the classic fork. To settle this this debate once and for-all please post which piece you think is the best and if you have time, explain why. Thank you!
