Playing more endgames

I seem to be reaching more simplify positions leading to endgames. Here is one I loss as black.

    I think you have to post the PGN of this game. I have tried and tried, but I fail to find the loss for black.

    I think endings are a better place to study than beginnings. I think that there is more growth in endings, and there may well be as many points there as well.

    Loss came with improper play. I'm afraid there is not much value to my posting the actual play. Interesting comments regarding endings vs openings. Certainly one who studies endings has a lot of winning knowledge that most are unwilling to work for. Thanks for stopping by.

    I was hoping for the opportunity to learn. Sometimes it is obvious where things went wrong, and sometimes it isn't.

    I probably learn as much or more from the error then from lack of error. Thanks for posting the game, it looked liked it was going to be a good example of where you can go wrong with something like this.
