$k$ for which the following statement is true.

Find the smallest positive integerSuppose $k$ rooks are placed on a $2014 \times 2014$ chessboard. Then, there must exist three rooks, call them $r_1, r_2, r_3,$ such that $r_1$ attacks $r_2,$ $r_3$ also attacks $r_2$, but $r_1$ doesn't attack $r_3$.

**Details and assumptions**

- Two rooks are said to attack each other if they lie on the same row or same column.
- The $k$ rooks are placed on distinct cells, i.e. a cell contains at most one rook.
- The given condition must hold for any configuration of $k$ rooks.
- This problem is not original.
