One Chariot endgames 06

1r hw 1h2e, 1r pw 1h2e  (3 examples)
In this section, one chariot vs one horse and 2 elephants are discussed.
Again, this may seem easy for most, but there are tricks involved. If the horse side is able to get into the formation in the first game, it will be a draw. The chariot side will win if it does not. There are many tactics for the chariot side to win. They include:
1) forcing the horse to cross the river, where it can be constrained or even caught.
2) using endgames tactics in 1R vs 2E to capture one elephant.
3) fork or skewer the horse (yummy)
There are three examples given for positional wins.
