CENTER OF ALL: A KNIGHT OF DISCOVERY

Indeed, placing the Knight at the central position is like a devastating cyclone for your opponent. In this Live Chess game, I managed to manipulate the role of a knight at the center.So basically, the purpose of the Knight at the center is to widen your control over the area on the chess board. The imminent power of the knight with his hook is like an imaginary whip that circles within its capture range. The idea is simple, that is to control the tempo of the game. Hence, to do that, you need to limit the movements of your opponent and basically limit its area before it can attack you. Furthermore, a strong center can be played with the humble Knight. Well, my chess mentor once said before, the moment that you controlled the center, is the moment that you can control the flow of the game", and that, dictates the winner of the game.
I have attached one of my Live Chess games here inorder to demonstrate the role of a Knight playing at its center position.
Have fun! :)
