This series will show you in great detail the specific qualities of each chess piece, so that you can maximize their effectiveness and thus improve your game.

Let us explore together how the rooks should enter the game in the early middlegame, how they operate on open files and how they sometimes join a deadly attack, being transferred in front of the pawn chain. We will also discuss the cooperation of the rooks and many more topics.
