Whenever you look for a move look for the best one. The chess pieces when known properly prove out to be the best winning bidder. When you know the most of your pieces strength and weakness no one can stop you from being the great chess player. As i said earlier hold,learn and grasp the basics and i say it again that get into every aspect of knowledge.
Lets take a glance of how to use the most of your pieces:-
Bishops are most useful when controlling long, unblocked diagonals. Bishops are particularly useful when you have both of them, so they can control both light and dark squares.
Knights are best in the center, where they can control up to eight squares. Knights work well with queens and also do a good job blocking pawns.
Put your rooks on open files, where they won't be blocked by pawns. Rooks are also good on semi-open files, attacking opposing pawns or defending your pawns. Rooks are effective in batteries, working together on an open rank or file, especially the 7th rank.
Queens are very powerful, but you must be careful not to lose her for less valuable pieces. For that reason, queens often develop a little later than other pieces. The best use of a queen is to target the opposing king with help from other pieces.
Early in the game you will want to castle the king to safety. In the endgame, you want to use the king to help escort pawns up the board. When it can't be checkmated, the king can be a strong piece!
Pawns have four primary uses.
1. Pawns can control key squares, such as the center. If your pawns control the center the opponent won't be able to put pieces on good squares.
2. Pawns are also helpful protecting your own pieces so they cannot be captured.
3. Pawns are useful as battering rams to open a path to the opposing king.
4. Pawns are good for promoting into more powerful pieces.
