Practical Endgames 40

One Chariot vs Three Pawn Endgames 
1r hw 3p (2 egs), 1r pw 3p
Again, like in the endgames in the previous page, these endgames are nearly impossible to reach in actual play, but they serve to teach a lesson or two on the basic principles of obtaining an open file for the king to allow it to attack in endgame theory. This is a very important principle in endgame theory.
