Here is a game where Tarrasch gives the odds of a Rook. Ironically, he goes out of "generosity", and sacrifice his Queen on move 15, and to finish off his eager opponent he immolates his remaining Rook on move 19. This game shows that a Rook edge can be an a deciding advantage against a regular player but not against Dr. Tarrasch.

(I removed White's Queen-side Rook, but then the castling move didn't work for some reason, please bear with me and just imagine the Rook is not there)
