Picking the right first move was a natural; I hadn't even noticed black's interposition defense. Fortunately there was the pawn in place to protect my 2. Rb4+ second move. So I was able to "solve" it a move at a time, but I must confess I didn't see the entire sequence from the beginning.
How would I have played it had I not had the pawn at c3? I'm going to analyze a bit and come back with the answer.
Doubling Rooks on the a-file and helping yourself to the pinned Bishop looks like a good way to start - there's no tearing hurry with the material balance the way it is. :)
an easy one
Queen sac could have won this too. Could have been so epic
Easy squuezy!! love those rooks!
Nice one - rooks in charge
The hard part here is to find the enemy King, Ha , ha, and notice that it's ha ha not he he.
Nice little variation on the two rooks mate.
very odd position, but good one
Please be relevant, helpful & nice!
Simple but nice.
