    I've seen people play thinking the Knight captures what ever it jumps over and lands on. That's one deadly piece!

    Can I castle Kingside, then if I get in trouble, castle Queenside to get out of it ?

    My friend wanted to confirm with me that the knight is the only piece that can jump over other pieces nervous.png

    @ aka

    22.Ng6 I'm surprised they let white's knight in that far! 56...Ke7? Black should have wanted to fight white for that g8 square. 

    About trading off white's rook at the end: I don't see black's knight as an imminent threat to trade it for a rook. Yeah, black's knight is protected by a center pawn and white's rook is not on a strong square, but wouldn't it remain that a rook is still stronger if you move it to a more optimum square? Although maybe I'm missing something a higher rated player would see (; 

    Actually, the strategy behind doing so is to keep the pawn advantage for yourself while removing the possibility of counter play by your opponent; by removing all pieces. If I had kept my Rook and his Knight on the board, he would have had more opportunity for counter play. But, because his pawns could not do anything as they were, I took his Knight plus one pawn of the board at the expense of my Rook, thus fixing his pawn structure. And there was no way (that I could tell) he could stop my extra pawn from promoting.
