95a_QR endgames --> Heavy pieces in action
Compiled by whiteshark
--*--

Endgames with Queens and Rooks can be tricky. With so much firepower around both Kings tend to feel uncomfortable, and pawns, if there are any left, do not always offer reliable protection. No wonder tactics abound in such endgames. - O. Reeh

Major-piece endings, for example ones with ♕+♖ are notorously decided in favour of the side with the more effective and/or more advanced passed pawn. From the standpoint of modern middlegame theory, the more interesting issue concerns the role of passed pawns earlier in the game. John Watson, Secrets of modern chess theory, p 37.
