  Gregor Samsa Mendel: An unusual case where having a doubled pawn is advantageous in the endgame. Black's separated b-pawns provide the extra tempo that allows black to gain the opposition: 38...b6.

I'm no great shakes as a chessplayer, but I once managed to steer a game into an ending similar to this one. Upon losing, my opponent was outraged, saying I should have lost because of my doubled pawns. He then subjected me to a torrent of verbal abuse that, sadly, is all too common on Yahoo! chess.
