These two positions are absolutely essential knowledge! I rate this far ahead of knowing the name of the opening you played.
Thanks for the info! To be honest I've just started taking chess really seriously and given that I was at the beginning - to me I figured getting some openings under my belt was a good way to "begin". Now that I've had a few rook and pawn endgames I can definitely see the value of learning this material. Thanks for the mini-lesson!
