More reason to study rook endings

Played a fine Closed Sicilian last night at club. Worked hard to win a pawn and get a protected passer. Then I fumbled in a double rook and pawn ending and had to take a draw. I messed up because I was pushing an advantage in time trouble.

This is another reason to study the endings. It's a rare person in time trouble in the opening, but most end games are played when one is short on time. Gotta get them to the point that they are like multiplication tables. On second thought, they probably should be better than my multiplication tables which are kinda crappy. Perhaps I should work on my math skills instead.
