Jun-20-08  Mateo: For those who want to learn about Rook endings, this one is an extraordinary lesson. In my opinion, after careful examination, every single move played by Panno from move 33 til the end is worthy of a masterpiece. On the Black side, 42...g4? loses for sure. But even after a waiting move such as 42...Ke7, I am not sure Black can hold.

  Fusilli: <Mateo> True, nice endgame, but also true that Najdorf jeopardized his drawing chances with 42...g4. Panno is really good at rook endings. See for example Panno vs Reshevsky, 1980.

  wwall: I don't think 42...g4 is the losing move. I think it still draws. The losing move may be 44...Kg6. Black should draw after 44...Kf6! 45.exf5 (45.Ke3 g3 46.hxg3 hxg3 47.exf5 e5 should draw) 45...exf5 46.Ke3 g3 (or 46...Kg6) 47.hxg3 hxg3 48.f4 Rg7 49.a7 (49.Ra1 Re7+) 49...g2 50.Ra6 Kf7 51.Ra1 Rg3 52.Kf2 g1=Q 53.Rxg1 Ra3 54.Rh1 Kg6 and Black can hold.
