    In general, in the King and pawn vs. lone King position, the weaker side loses if he can't get his King in front of the enemy pawn--if you can't block and stop the pawn from queening, then you're a goner! However, rook-pawns often allow all sorts of exceptions due to the fact that there isn't a file to the side of the pawn(which creates many odd stalemate possibilities).
