Kingside castling is safer than Queenside castling

Kingside castling is safer than Queenside castling

Kingside castling places the King away from the center and safer behind a rank of protected pawns; furthermore it’s a quicker move than Queenside castling since only two pieces have to be moved before.

On the other hand, castling on the opponent’s opposite side may be very interesting to create more attacking opportunities.

Most of the times it’s worthwhile to sacrifice a pawn in order to keep the King in the center

Dominate as much territory as possible

Dominate as much territory as possible

The player, who has an advantage in space, enables greater mobility to friendly pieces and can, therefore, transfer pieces from one side to the other with more flexibility.rook
