does he play chess or is he played around?
I hardly can see Zero playing chess, at least he never shown to have such trait as character. Moreover his reaction towards Yuuki and his wordings –for me at least- it is way too emotional and intense thus inconsistent with someone who’s thinking strategically and self-possessedly. >>

xD I quickly went to the prvious posts, and I read it somewhere in a post?. It was just my point that Zero suddenly revealing what he 'knows' was no deliberate move.
Yuuki saying that Kaname was innnocent after all (or something like that) must've been the last drop (I don't even know if this expression is used in english, but you know what I mean?). I think sometimes we (we all) seek to much (like motives) behind simple emotional reactions. These are all humans (or vampires but you get the point
), not Robots.
Okay then sorry if I misunderstood.
So we agree …
I count his reaction more of an impulse driven from mixed and intense suppressed feelings rather as a well calculated move to serve a plan there. And while this estimation doesn’t rule out the possibility to have acted this way because he can’t stand Yuuki defending Kaname and want to go to him –thus and badmouthing him- it does limit the explanation that he is protecting her as a source for more info. >>
That's why I said we don't need to put him into a corner with Sara. Like everyoneone said it is totally against his values. But if he feels like he might only get the truth form her, then he will want to at least protect his information source. For example to win time.
I do not believe either that he suddenly loved Sara of course. But I think that he fully believed her thus placed himself into her web. If Zero had doubts for what Sara told him or a plan to counter her IMO he wouldn’t badmouth Kaname especially to Yuuki. Although we know his personal biased opinion for Kaname I find it difficult to degrade him in front of her moreover since Yuuki didn’t express the intention to kill Sara.
I mean in case that he wanted to protect the source for more info as you supported, why he went to such extents? Was Sara running any danger to be killed from Yuuki at that moment? Why such rush and determination to protect Sara right there? Why he treated roughly Hanadagi’s guard ignoring her testimony?
Anyways getting his source killed, would be unfurtunate.
Didn’t Yuuki say that she’ll stop Kaname? If Yuuki stops Kaname wouldn’t that serve Zero’s interest IF his interest is to protect Sara only in order to gain more time and info? If that was his motive then he should have let Yuuki to stop Kaname cuz their interests coincide.
His wording “I won’t let you lay your hands on that woman …”
!!!! and “That man … Kaname Kuran … every single one of his cells, the entirety of his existence, is nothing but filth!”
IMO are very strong and emotional to indicate only his attempt to protect a source. And how by saying that Kaname is filthy protecting Sara? When he said that Kaname hadn’t appeared yet!?
Additional if his only intention was to protect only Sara=source why he said to Kaien>>
Zero: “…I just wish we had more purebloods like this who serve our interest.”
He wished to have more PBs to serve their interests?!!!!
What this could have to do with his intention to protect ONLY Sara for the time being at least?
I think Yuuki’s words together with Zero’s statements nailed your estimation about Zero’s motive.
Furthermore Sara seems pretty confident that she gained the weapon aka Zero that she was seeking for long and that he shall fall as Takuma. Her words leading me to the thought that Zero believed her and thus possibly he’ll drink from her in the near future something that will bond him further and bring him on the same position as Takuma, if not even worse cuz Takuma knows her deceptions and he has self-awareness of the position that he is in to.
Hmm, I see for the murder of his parents Yagari would know more.but.. Kaien could possibly know more from K.(Like the situation with Yuuki, Kaien knew about it). Indeed he trusts Yagari, but that's why he wouldn't ask. Yagari would never hold back any information like that. While Kaien has already done that. The difference is that that time it was for Yuuki's best interest...But then again he never really trusted Kaien when it came to vampire matters.
I hardly can believe that Kaien would cover Kaname’s involvement into Zero’s parents’ murder. The fact that Kaien hid from Zero Yuuki’s true nature has a totally different gravity to be compared. Moreover, didn’t Kaien hide Zero’s vampirism from Yuuki and on expense of her? Zero has no right to mistrust Kaien based on this in the first place. And if that is his rational then in my eyes he is irrational.
Furthermore –maybe it’s me- but this speculation seems contradictory …
He goes to Kaien who doesn’t trust to ask about Kaname’s plan? And why trusting what Kaien would have to say since he doesn’t trust him; especially concerning Kaname’s affairs?
Sarah seems to have told him K had everything to do with his family, so it's not weird for Zero to ask If Kaien knew about Kaname's plans, like he knew about his plans with Yuuki.
For me it is weird! I’ll repeat myself … what connection can have Kaname’s current or future moves
with the death of his parents??? Asking for Kaname’s current plan for a matter that happened 5 years ago and it is over!?
If you have any idea I would gladly hear it cuz frankly I can’t think any connection right now.
