[+] Rooks on the 7th Rank


(GW) What I thought I understood about ...

Rooks on the 7th Rank

  • Self-explanatory. The title says it all ... Getting a Rook to the 7th Rank is often devastating - for the enemy - as it can attack all the remaining, enemy Pawns, from their weak sides or from behind. The Pawns are rendered powerless and must rely on the remaining Pieces for protection (tying up those Pieces, potentially).
