96b_The Unbearable Lightness of rook endgames 2
Compiled by whiteshark
--*--

Rook Endgame is the most common type of Endgame and one of the more complex one. There are many nuances – activity of the rook, king’s position, pawn structure that can easily distort what seems to be a clear picture. I'll picked them up whenever they crossed my way.

♖ = ♖ = ♖ = ♖ = ♖ = ♖ = ♖ = ♖ = ♖ = ♖ = ♖ = ♖ = ♖ = ♖ =

Rook handling and endings in general constitute one of the most fascinating elements in chess. Rich in both tactical and strategic possibilities, they offer us the opportunity to marvel at its endless creative potential and unique ideas.

Of all chess endings (pawn, queen, rook, bishop and knight), rook endings are the ones encountered most frequently. Like all aspects of chess technique, rook endings (and in general the correct handling of rooks) encompass a significant amount of theoretical and repeated motifs, which we have to be aware of – just like our openings. In this way we will be able to make correct decisions at important junctures of the game, decisions that will either promise us victory or allow us to secure the draw.

This DVD, called 'Rook Handling', tries to cover important parts of this field and help you to assimilate knowledge and to understand in depth the proper handling of rooks in certain cases. We shall examine how to keep our rook active, how to trap a rook, how not to lose a drawn rook ending, how to handle technical rook endings, how to successfully transfer our rook, how to enhance cooperation between rook and knight and finally how to defend against a knight and three pawns.

To be honest, this is just a small amount of the huge quantity of material that one has to learn about rooks, but in any case it is a good start! http://www.chessbase.com/newsdetail...
