  Phony Benoni: A very instructive endgame, demonstrating the power of an active rook.

  whiteshark: <Phony Benoni> Not to mention the extra pawn on the queenside and the bustling white king. :D

  whiteshark: <Phony Benoni: ...demonstrating the power of an active rook.>> btw, after recapturing on d4 on move 27, the 'active (white) rook' didn't move anymore... :D

  GrahamClayton: Schlechter's Rook is perfectly placed on d4, cutting off Kaufmann's King from the Q-side, and giving him plenty of time to move his own King to the q-side and advance his pawns.
