Also known as the castle, in end games the power of these pieces is manifested in checking the king and putting an end in the game by placing a checkmate. The value of chess rooks are also observed when players decided to castle. Hence, rooks are not only used to initiate attacks but also to protect the king.

I learned chess in 5th grade. joined the chess club and have secretly worshiped it ever since, carrying a board in my car, & travel set when I fly. I've always believed people live their lives much like they play the game. Wanna play?
