c- and d- pawns versus h-pawn rook endings
I saw some nice studies about similar endgames here posted so thought that some people could be interested in my analysis built around a recent played game by myself.
[pgn][Event "c and d pawns aga...|/pgn]
Analysis were made by manually inserting some lines in 2 engines: Fritz, Rybka without having direct access to the tablebases. Tablebases were manually checked online.
Any feedback on the correctness of the analysis is welcome. Not only to learn something about this type of endgame but also if my method of analyzing is trustful for such positions.
