Lightning doesn't strike twice. Except if you're a world champion. Today Vladimir Kramnik's twin rooks jump all around the board, mocking the power of the queen. It worked so well once, he figured why not try it again? Years later, in a close facsimile of the same position, he won again. In both cases the enemy king could not seem to get out of his own way. Fans of geometry will love today's video - the two coordinated rooks paint a pretty picture.
