Every chess player learns their chess pieces' value early. This value system is one of the fundamentals we must know if we are to avoid losing material.
When you know that a rook is worth five points and a bishop three points, you won’t exchange a rook for a bishop without considering other factors. The chess pieces’ value is the foundation of our play as beginners.
In light of this, getting a firm grasp on the chess pieces’ value is essential. More important is getting a genuine value for the chess pieces.
There are times when their value increases and, at other times, diminishes. The knowledge of your chess pieces’ value must get used wisely.
