You better put some hop along in your Cassidy or your Queen is toast!
The value of a move is often times, more than the value of a any one piece.
Play in such a way, as to conserve lost moves through retreat, or multi step advancement.
Trading a piece, is often good, because an opponent may not be expecting that, especially if you trade a Queen for a lessor piece.
To suggest a move for you would be unethical, but both sides have strategy's possible to attain victory.
Chess is my all time favorite game. The only thing I miss about HS is the Chess Club, and playing several games at once over lunch.
