I've had a couple of chances recently to play out rook endgames. These were both from correspondence games. I took my time with a lot of the moves, thinking about where I might slip up, and trying to anticipate my opponents' moves. The main thing I tried to practice was: rooks belong behind passed pawns. Lots of cold, hard, calculation too, but I'm pleased with how they both turned out.
