Apr-16-05  Whitehat1963: The master of the rook and pawn endings shows his stuff.
Oct-07-08  I Offer You A Resign: What's wrong with Kg7 at the end? It seems like maybe he might be able to hold the position?
Oct-07-08  Shams: <I Offer You A Resign> white doesn't need the h-pawn to win: 61.♔g7 ♔d5 and now 62.♔xh6 ♔e5 or 62. f6 ♔e6 and in both cases the pawns fall easily.

if 61 Rg7 Rg3+ puts the question to the King.

Then 62 Kxh6 Kd5 catches the f pawn

  tamar: Or Shams way works too :)
Oct-07-08  Shams: <tamar> on general principle, though, you're right-- push the king around right away with Rg3+.
Nov-11-08  I Offer You A Resign: Just played it out. Thanks!

And he marks 26.Ne4 a mistake.

  zanzibar: 56.Rxa3+ is a moment of insanity by Bogo.

I wonder if Bogo thought he was playing for a win when he played 54.f4 ... hmmm?

  mike1: not much of a game really... except for Bogo's meltdown. SF says: ) =0.00 (39 ply) 58.Kxf6 Kb3 59.Ra1 Kb2 60.Rf1 a2 61.f5 a1=Q 62.Rxa1 Kxa1 63.Kg6 Ra4 64.Kxh6 (instead of 58.f5)
