Chess Board Zones[White v. Black Half]

Chess Board Zones
- White's Half -

 Chess Board ZonesWhite's Half White's Half of the Board includes all the 32 squares within the boundary of squares, marked in Algebraic Notation, as: a1-a4-h4-h1 If you're playing as Black, you'll be focusing your attacks into this region of the Board. In addition, you want to position your pieces - especially the long-range attackers (Bishops, Rooks, and Queen) - in such a way, that White finds less 'safe' squares, even in his own half of the Board!
