|May-05-07|| ||Knight13: 97. Rf2? Kh1 98. Rxg2 stalemate. White need to get his rook on h2 instead of f2, so 97. Rf8!|
|May-05-07|| ||Marmot PFL: Strange that Botvinnik draws a pawn down with Fischer yet loses the same to Janosevic. Most likely here he did not have Geller, Spassky, Keres etc to help with adjournment analysis. 54...Kf6! is still a draw (55.e7 Ra1, or 55.Rf7+ Kxe6 56.Rxf1 Ke5!).|
|May-05-07|| ||Marmot PFL: <54...Kf6! is still a draw> Should read 84...Kf6 etc, my eyes can't tell the 5 from the 8 so well anymore. Also did they kill the "kill message" feature?|
|May-05-07|| ||Knight13: 84...Kf6 is a draw? 85. Rf7+ picks up the f1 rook.|
|May-05-07|| ||Marmot PFL: <Knight> R vs P ending is drawn. White king is too far off.|
|Nov-12-13|| ||wwall: 80...Rg1 is the losing move. Black can draw after 80...Rg4 or 80...Rg3, or 80...Rg2, but not 80...Rg1. For example, 80...Rg2 81.e5 Rf2+ 82,Ke7 g5 83.e6 Kg7 84.Ke8+ Kf6 85.e7 g4 86.Kd8 Ra2 draws.|
84...Kd8+ should only draw. Winning is 84.Rd5! Kg6 85.Kd7 Re1 86.e7 Kf7 87.Rf5+ Kg6 88.Rf1 Rxf1 89.e8=Q+ wins for White.
84...Kg6? loses. Black can draw with 84...Kf6 85.e7 (85.Rf7+ Kxe6 86.Rxf1 Ke5 and 87...g4 draws) 85...Ra1 86.Rd6+ Kf5 87.Rd5+ Kf4 draws.
|Sep-21-16|| ||Howard: Mueller's recent book on rook endgames analyzes this ending---remind me to look at it again tonight.|
Some of the analysis, in other words, might be a bit out of date.
