Endgames, Carlsen, Ding Liren and the King's Gambit

On the show today, I'll be looking at a couple of related pawn endgames involving an important theme. Then I will turn my attention to two short games from the Ding-Carlsen rapid match, played in the Magnus Invitational online tournament. In one of the games, the World Champion plays the KIng's Gambit, and he goes into a line that I recommended on my latest DVD on the opening!

White to play and draw: how?
