Take My Rooks

Just got the books from Minev and Seirawan Take my Rooks ;136 annotated games involving double rook sacrifices (passively surrender on the back rank) and Mastering Tactical Ideas by Minev.

Playing a little poorly at the moment hopefully studying of some artistic games will help.


Here is a sample game from the Take My Rooks book.

Blogger Update: I am enjoying the Minev Mastering Tactical Ideas book which is a collection of his columns from the magazine: inside Chess . I once created this collection and the titles give you an idea of the chapters of the book. Each chapter has 6 plus games illustrating each theme.


also just arrived in the mail Gellers book - positional chess handbook
