Roundhouse RUUK Manueverz Three & Fro-dthebear
Compiled by fredthebear

Towers of power standing strong in the siege. This collection is not just rook sacrifices, but various rook maneuvers. Most games are standard operating procedures for the rooks, but some are thrillers. FTB believes the rook is a "finisher", but not generally as exciting as others, in part because it often waits for the board to clear.

Thank you mmzkr.
