Rook Belong Behind Passed Pawn!


Last night i played a blitz game against Federico Garcia (photo above) in the Internet Chess Club (ICC). He is a composer and music teacher. Currently teach at Chatam College in Pittsburgh, and offer private piano and music theory lessons. His website is http://www.fedegarcia.net/main.html


The game were totally hopeless for me right from the start but i managed to win on time although being 2 pawn down in rook endings with pawns.

The final position was evaluate equal by "my best friend" Mr. Fritz. This proved that rooks should always belong behind passed pawn !
