Rook Lifts
Compiled by chessic eric
--*--

These subtle yet powerful moves are often the source of tactical middlegame threats against the enemy king's pawn shield or important defensive pieces. They also often ensure rook mobility should the middlegame extend to an ending. I am just beginning my search of CG's collection for these, so stay tuned...

Nimzowitsch vs E V Nielsen, 1930 
(B17) Caro-Kann, Steinitz Variation, 23 moves, 1-0

16.Re3 and 17.Rff3 allow decisive rook activity
