GM Petrov’s Attack the King! - Attacking with Bishops and Rooks

Opening: C48, C00:

Player(s): Paulsen, Morphy, Petrov, Webb

Rook and bishop working together can be a deadly pair. The rook can wreak havoc on the files and columns, and the bishop on diagonals. Together they are a "power-unit" that, if used the right way, can become an excellent attacking tool. As attacking players, we need to master this weapon. GM Marian shows us the first example from one of the most famous chess games ever played: Paulsen vs. Morphy. It is a fantastic example of how rooks and bishops work together. Marian played the second game, and it shows again the power of these two minor pieces working together. Of course, if we can manage to get a rook - or both! - on the seventh rank, and grant them the support of one or both bishops, our attacking potential becomes, in most cases, unstoppable!
