  1. Getting the rook trapped in such a way has happened to me a couple times in my 1-minute speed chess games. I’ve also trapped my opponent’s rooks in many games, once I knew how to do it when given the chance! What I’m saying here is that while it might hurt to get your own rook trapped in a game, you then learn to look for that possibility in future games, not only to your rooks, but you look for ways to trap your opponent’s rook. …Or bishop, or knight, or queen.

  2. Love this tactic!

    These are better than the daily puzzles on other websites where half the puzzles are Sac the Queen. A concept that, while valid, very rarely comes up in real games.
