A checkmate is where you force the enemy in such a way that the enemy king has nowhere to go. Now, a two rook checkmate is an easy way of winning. First, you block the escapade route of the enemy king with one of your rooks. Then you give check to the enemy king. You keep on giving check to the enemy king until he attacks one of your unsupported rooks. Move the rook to the other end of the board. The king will start moving there. Give him a check with your other rook. When the king moves to the last rank of the board, use the rook which was attacked to checkmate the king. Come again in chessopedia for 'More Ways To Win'
