The Positional Rook Ending

The Positional Rook Ending


EU Union-ch 4th 2008

White to play

Although White won, the position is close to equal now. White keeps up the pressure until Black cracks and makes a fatal weakening pawn move.

Key techniques used included

  • king activation
  • gaining space on the kingside
  • rook activation on the c-file and later on the 6th and 7th ranks
  • simplification to a single rook ending
