Rook endings:

<<"Rook and pawn endings are the most common endings in chess. Well worth spending some time studying. There are three areas, in order of amount of content and difficulty - general principles, common R+ many P endings, and how to win or draw specific endings. If you have never looked at the literature on R+P endings it is well worth it. Quite apart from there being many excellent books, the chronology of the literature is a great snapshot of how the understanding of chess has evolved.">>

<<"A lot of these queen endings are counter intuitive. When you are first learning chess, it comes as a surprise that you want to run the king far away from the pawn to some remote corner of the board. The goal, of course, is to avoid forced queen trades while repeatedly checking with your queen.">>

<<"Calculation is frequently very demanding in Queen endings and so general principles count for a lot. With Q vs Q+NP the defender does not need to get the King in front of the pawn: the King should head for the opposite corner to cut down on checks forcing a Q exchange or creating shelter.">>
