Are you the weakest link in chess? I would hope not, but in the game of chess there are a piece called the pawn. It is considered one of the weakest links. The pawn is limited to their own movements. You are only allowed to move the pawn piece in a forward movement, it can not be moved backwards. So, be sure when you move your pawn piece that you are moving it in the direction that you are wanting it to be moved in. So is your pawn piece one of the weakest link during your game of chess?
