Webinar: Unlock the Power of the Rooks! – IM Valeri Lilov
“Rooks belong on open files” – we all know that. But, once there, what do we do with them?
And we all know that getting our rooks to the seventh rank is usually a good idea – but what should we be willing to give up to get them there? What if I told you it’s worth sacrificing an entire piece to double your rooks on the seventh? If you need more convincing then join IM Lilov this Saturday for an eye-opening webinar!
In this week’s free training, IM Valeri Lilov will demonstrate the true power of the rooks, and reveal how to take maximum advantage of the heavy pieces.
Click here at noon EST on Saturday to join the webinar – it’s free! (You might want to bookmark the link and set a reminder).
You’re going to learn:
- The stunning pawn sacrifice that lead to Wilhelm Steinitz playing one of the most brilliant combinations of all-time! Discover not just the combination, but also how the first World Champion engineered such a dynamic position in the first place!
- Botvinnik’s sneaky trick, allowing his rook to be trapped only to free it with a series of sacrifices that ripped open Portisch’s defenses, laying waste to the enemy king! You can bet none of your rivals will see this coming!
- Wesley So’s modern masterpiece – this is how to get those invaluable doubled rooks! Wesley sac’d first a knight then his queen… then won! A spectacular and hugely instructive lesson.
