[what is this?] --*-- [what is this?]

  1. 3rd rank rook deployment
    11 games, 1890-2009

  2. Connected Passed Pawns
    1 game, 1908

  3. Ground Truth in opp-colored KBPP vs KBP endgames
    games such that

    they reach an opposite-colored KBPP vs KBP endgame ​and
    ​there was at least one result-changing error after that point ​
    ​I posted the tablebase report of what those errors were ​

    Honorable mention goes to A Pena Riasco vs J Henrichsen, 2013, in which, on 3 consecutive moves, black could've drawn by going into an opposite-colored KBPP vs KBP endgame, but when black finally did so, it was lost and white kept the win from that point on.

    The "usual situation" for this collection is
    ​connected passers vs. passer, with at least 2 pawnless files in-between.

    12 games, 1896-2016

  4. too many sacs
    Games where one side sacrifices so much material that they do not have enough left to finish the attack.
    5 games, 1849-2003
