For somebody who thinks he isn't playing much chess, I've had a fair few rook endings recently. What I haven't had so far this year, what I've never had in a graded game for that matter, is rook plus f & h pawns against lone rook. I did get it once in an internet blitz game (and drew it on the weaker side), but that hardly counts.
I know a couple of people who've definitely had this ending. Curiously both had the pawns and both received draw offers from their opponents. Which strikes me as a bit optimistic of the defenders to say the least.
What about our esteemed and valued readership, I wonder? There must be someone out there who has some experience with this ending.
Anyhoo, while you look back through your old scorebooks/databases, enjoy Anand - McShane from last year's London Chess Classic. Keep an eye out for the exchange of blunders on move 90. More on them tomorrow.
