Do Not Centralize King in Double Rook Endings

This is an exception to the rule of centralize the King in endgames. Double rook endgames mean that both players have two rooks each, so there are four rooks buzzing around. With two enemy rooks on the board, its still not really very safe for your King. Usually better to keep the King safe in the castled area in a double rook endgame, until one pair of rooks is swapped off.
