Yasser Seirawan, in introducing the double rook sacrifice, urges readers to "lose yourself in fantasy" as playing this scenario is akin to entering "a dream world, a world of fantasy where [the player] may come out a magician." Certainly it's a daring approach, requiring the player to give up more than a queen's worth of value. But Seirawan and coauthor Nikolay Minev have collected 136 games--far more than the 20-some that usually appear when the double-rook sacrifice is discussed--that beautifully illustrate where and why the tactic may work so dramatically, as well as where and why it may end in disaster.
