The rook endgame is one of the complex phases of a chess game, even for the most experienced players. They are tricky, especially when it is easy to go wrong under the pressure of a game. Usually, in a chess game, the rooks are kept reserved during the opening and the middlegame stages. Also, they are not traded off in the earlier stage of the game as opposed to the minor pieces. That’s why rook endgames are one of the most common, frequently occurring endgames, compared to the others.
