“The winner of the game is the player who makes the next-to-last mistake”
“Adequate compensation for a sacrifice is having a sound combination leading to a winning position; adequate compensation for a blunder is having your opponent snatch defeat from the jaws of victory.”
–Bruce A. Moon
The word “Checkmate” in Chess comes from the Persian phrase “Shah Mat,” which means “the King is dead.”
Rookies or, players in their first year, are named after the Rook in Chess. Rooks generally are the last pieces to be moved into action, and the same goes for Rookies.
