Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-14-06  Elroch: Horwitz lost this due to an error on move 70 in an instructive rook versus pawn ending.

70. ...b3? was the losing move, but 70. ...Kd4! is a textbook example of doing two jobs with the king, marching towards c2 by an indirect route to delay the white king.

70. ...Kd4! 71. Rb7 Kc3 72. Ke4 (72. Rc7+ Kd2! or ♔d3!, ♔d4!, but not ♔b2? losing 73. Rc7+ Kd2! and black can hold the draw.

Sep-27-14  dernier thylacine: What a pity, ELROCH!
Because Horwitz was specially famous for his endgames technique, so he could create one of his jewels here, but lost this opportunity!!
