Front facing knights

 "500 Chess Questions Answered" is a book a purchased recently. Written by GM Andy Soltis, it is basically a FAQ for chess, covering everything from learning strategies to how tournaments are run. 

One section is titled "Rulebook" and deals with common questions. One question is whether knights must always face forward, and of course the answer is no. But what I did not know was that Kasparov always had his knights face left. I'm not sure which way I face my knights (probably forwards) but I guess this means it isn't an issue for me.
