Double rook sacrifices lead to double diagonal mates! We bet you've never thought of that! When you offer both rooks, it makes sense to attack on the diagonals, and today FM Todd Andrews shows you two prime examples of this exciting trick. The rooks are wounded before they even get in the battle, but the chase leads to one side getting his queen completely offside. Even a World Champion falls prey to this scheme!
