Pittfalls : Trapping a rook in a rook ending

Feb 9, 2015, 1:41 PM 0

"Rook endings are always drawn" is a well-known chess quote.

However, I find rook endings often fascinating.

In this game example one of the rooks of the opponents gets trapped in a 4 rook ending. After that the opponent played basically with a rook down.

The game is not very good, but I just want to share this as an example to avoid trapping your own pieces with sneaky little tactics.
