Checkmating with Rooks
Checkmating with two Rooks is very similar to checkmating with the Queen and Rook. However, it may take a little longer to checkmate with the two Rooks because the King is able to attack them more than it can attack the Queen. This is the position you should be aiming for to checkmate the enemy King with two Rooks:
The Rook confines the King to the edge of the board and the other Rook delivers checkmate.
|Let's put the King in the middle of the board. The King must now be driven to the edge before checkmate can be delivered.|
|1. ...Kd6 2. Rb6+||
|2. ...Kc7 3. Raa6||
|3. ...Kd8 4. Rb7||
|3. ...Kc8 4. Raa7||
|3. ...Kd8 4. Rb8#||
Practise checkmating with two Rooks against a King with a friend or chess computer until you are confident of delivering checkmate in this way.
