Oh I absolutely agree that Ralph should write the crooked rook page. The whole crooked-mover idea was his to begin with -- I just borrowed it for Optima. He gets all of the credit. And Ralph is best qualified to comment on the piece's value relative to other pieces, orthodox and otherwise. I'm a big admirer of Ralph's work on CVs.
