Attack from the Center In this position, the white Knight is safe from attack in the center and can move to eight different squares. From its central perch on d5, the white Knight is ready to assist in an attack on the black King or to lash out toward the black Queenside (the side of the board where the Queen started is called the Queenside while the side of the board on which the King started is called the Kingside).

White could play the Knight to g6 check (Ne5-g6+), winning the h8-Rook on the next move.
