In Ralph Betza's cspigs chess, this piece is worth six points. It certainly is more powerful than a Rook in the early and mid game when the board is crowded, but loses steam toward the end to faster pieces like the Bishop and Half-Rook (a rook limited to four spaces per move). I used to call this piece a 'Paladin', but I like 'Centaur' better.
