In Ralph Betza's cspigs chess, this piece is worth six points.  It
certainly is more powerful than a Rook in the early and mid game when the
board is crowded, but loses steam toward the end to faster pieces like
the
Bishop and Half-Rook (a rook limited to four spaces per move).

I used to call this piece a 'Paladin', but I like 'Centaur' better.
