GM trainer Dorian Rogozenko will discuss the "eternal problem" by showing examples and trying to explain when do we need to occupy open files with rooks and when it is best to avoid doing so.

GM Dorian Rogozenko's lectures begin at 21:00h server time (= MET, Middle European Time), which translates to 20:00h London and 3 p.m. New York. You can use Fritz or any Fritz-compatible program (Shredder, Junior, Tiger, Hiarcs) to follow the lectures, or download a free trial client here.
