  I faced a similar position when I found myself left only with a rook whereas my opponent had a pawn also in addition to a rook and a knight. Eventually the game went on to a draw. (It was the only draw that I had, and can be witnessed through my recent games.) I will vote in favour of DRAW. The ratio of a rook's value to a knights is 5 to 3, roughly that 14 to 8 ratio. A rook is considered to be worth a knight and two pawns. Each pawn has two potential captures, plus an extra move (total of three). Two pawns plus a knight = 3+3+8=14, the movement factor of a rook.

The knight, along with the king and the rook, has the oldest defined movement of any chess piece, its movement being unchanged since the invention of chaturanga in India around the 6th century. Similar pieces are found in almost all games of the chess family. The ma of xiangqi and janggi are slightly more restricted; conceptually, the piece is considered to pass through the adjacent.

Fellner (Reader) out of 5 stars 2 ratings/5(2). Queen Takes Knights is the first story in the Their Vampire Queen Series. It’s the story of Shara Isador, who has spent her life scared of the monsters in the night, with good reason.

The first book starts with how she meets the first of her Blood, her chosen knights who would die to do anything for her. It gets straight in there with the action/5(). In Figure 3 (on the left), a white rook and a black rook are ready for battle.

The white rook cannot move beyond the black rook along that rank — but it can capture it. A rook thus captures by taking the place of an opponent’s piece: The opponent’s piece is removed and the attacking piece takes its square, as in Figure 3 (on the right).

1 - Specifically, if the knight's in the red zone it can be immediately trapped by either the king or rook. If the knight's in the yellow zone it can be trapped by the king and rook together.

I find this a useful way to gauge the relative danger of squares. 2 - This position arises in a line from the Al-Aldi AD endgame study. The rook (/ r ʊ k /; ♖,♜) is a piece in the game of chess resembling a castle. Formerly the piece (from Persian رخ rokh/rukh) was called the tower, marquess, rector, and comes (Sunnucks ).The term castle is considered to be informal, incorrect, or old-fashioned.

Each player starts the game with two rooks, one on each of the corner squares on their own side of the board. A pawnless chess endgame is a chess endgame in which only a few pieces remain and none of them is a basic checkmates are types of pawnless endgames.

Endgames without pawns do not occur very often in practice except for the basic checkmates of king and queen versus king, king and rook versus king, and queen versus rook (Hooper ).Other cases that occur occasionally are (1) a rook.

Rook vs Knight Endgame. The rook vs knight endgame is one of the most challenging end games that a chess player will come across but is very important for every player to know.

The key to winning with the rook is to first capture the knight. This is done by moving your pieces in a way that will limit where the knight can move. Rook Takes Knight: Howie Rook, Book 2 Stuart Palmer (Author), A. Fellner (Narrator), Audible Studios (Publisher) Get Audible Free.

In his book Chess Endgames, If the pawn is a rook pawn or knight pawn, the back rank defense can be used. (Either Black takes the rook and the white pawn queens, or it forces the enemy rook off the vital a-file that has "checking distance", the rook moves on the back rank, followed by 7, and the pawn promotes.).
