Wow, what a Rook! Unlike any of the previous exchange sacrifices by GM Khachiyan's incredible chess coach, the prelude for this one involved an amazing, and rather counter-intuitive, Rook Lift. In this interesting Sicilian Defense, the tension surrounding the e5 and d5 pawn pushes -- and the descriptions provided by your author -- are quite instructive. Enjoy!
