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

Opening: A85, B33, C02:

Player(s): Gurevich, Short, Zubarev, Petrov, Popchev

The Rook, or Torre as the Latins call it (tower), is the most powerful chess piece after Her Majesty the Queen. We all know how active and influential can a Rook be, especially in endgames, where it is free to roam the board from left to right. It cannot run across diagonals, like the Bishop, which is the only thing that differentiates the Rook from the Queen. Often a Rook on the board decides the fate of a game. So, imagine what two coordinated Rook can do. If used the right way, two rooks can wreak havoc on the enemy's troops. In this video, GM Marian Petrov explains how to take advantage of having two rooks and, with some great examples, shows us what a couple of these menacing towers can do when well coordinated.
