Rook Endings in Practice

I dug out all the rook endings of mine I could find to show both typical positions and typical errors. Please note that these are not, therefore, models of technique, more like comedies of error!

The club player at his worst...

A Rook Ending: Capablanca-Janowsky

Capablanca,J - Janowsky,D [C48] New York INT (3), 1913

 This game was discussed at Exeter Chess Club training sessions on 13th/20th October 1998. The notes are based on those of Irving Chernev (Capablanca's 60 Best Chess Endings (OUP)) and liberally supplemented by comments and questions of the group, led by Tony Dempsey.
