  Chessical: A very instructive R+P's ending. Jasnogrodsky could have lost after <85.Rb2+> instead 85.Rb1 Ke2 86.Kg1 Re8 87.Rb2+ Kd1 88.Rb1+ Ke2 89.Rb2+ is equal.

One winning line by building a series of "bridges" is:

<85...Kf1> 86.Rb1+ Re1 87.Rb7 f2 88.Rb2 Re3 89.Rb1+ Re1 90.Rb2 Re5 91.Rb1+ Ke2 92.Rb2+ Kf3 93.Rb3+ Re3 94.Rb1 Rc3 95.Kh3 Rd3 96.Kh2 Rd5 97.Rb3+ Ke2 98.Rb1 Rd1 99.Rb8 Rd3 100.Rb2+ Ke1

The same technique applies after Jasnogrodsky's 87.Rb2 (87.Kh3!)
