  Sneaky: I keep thinking that Garry had some way of moving his king over to the c-file, playing ♖x♗, snagging the b-pawn, then escorting his own pawn in. But them I'm reminded of that old chess saying, "Passed rook pawns look more dangerous on the 2nd rank than on the 7th." The fact is that Black will just waltz his king over to the a-file and then he can't help but to draw.
Sep-05-05  euripides: <sneaky> Mueller and Lamprecht look at a similar ending with the pawn on a5 and a black-squared bishop. In that case White can get a decisive zugwang with the rook on c1 and the king on b6 when the black king is on b8. I'm not sure if this works here but there might be a chance around move 100.

  Peligroso Patzer: Compare the endgame in: Kramnik vs Ponomariov, 2009
Nov-12-09  Plato: Tablebases show White can win until his 102nd move, after which it is a forced draw. It was possible to win using the same theme as in the Kramnik-Ponomariov game listed above.
Nov-12-09  WhiteRook48: Kasparov might have burned out after 1999
Oct-25-12  vinidivici: 102. Re7+????? BIG error.

White shouldnt dislodge the black king from dangerous corner and try to hold the king as near as possible to the corner.

You need know the basic theory from rook pawn v bishop pawn. If theres a mistake just correct it because i played with engine and the first line i succeed at 3rd try beat the engine.

Meanwhile the second line is much easier. one who understand the theory should succeed in the first try.
