  RookFile: This was a really doubled edged endgame!
Oct-05-07  euripides: Efectively a Petrosian QID, a hundred years early.

  mike1: Think that Steinitz was winning at move 47. Instead of 47.. Rh3 he should have played Rb2+. 48. Kf1 Kf5 and White cannot keep pushing his pawns and protecting the b5 at the same time.
