    This is a phrase from the movie Pawn Sacrifice:

    "King to rook three. Knight to king six."

    Where do "rook 3" and "king six" define on the chess board? I mean how should I interpret where the King, and then the Knight moved to?

    It took me 15 seconds to type describing chess moves into google and come up with an answer (

    My query for "king to rook 3" didn't bring anything useful in google, so thank you for directing me the right place, SReynolds, even though I don't know why I shouldn't consult here, where I know I will get the best relevant answer, just like anybody else. But thank you for your help, once again.

    I wasn't trying to imply that you shouldn't have asked, it's just that a very simple Google search could have come up with this answer a lot faster. My first 3 Google results when searching for king to rook 5 are pages explaining this notation, but my Google is set to English, so that might be the reason.
