Chess Board Zones
[White v. Black Half]

White'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!

Black's Half
Black's Half of the Board includes all the 32 squares, within the boundary of squares, marked as:
  • a5-a8-h8-h5
If you're playing as White, 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 Black finds less 'safe' squares, even in his own half of the Board!

(Hmm, "Deja Vu", those last two paragraphs, what?).

Moving On: Kingside v. Queenside (Page 3).
