  An Englishman: Good Evening: It would appear that Saidy adjourned the game and decided not to continue. Good example of how to play a middle game without Queens.

  HeMateMe: white will continue to gain tempi by advancing his king and creating mating threats with the rook and pawns. the black king has no cover from the checks.
Sep-24-18  RookFile: After capturing on h2, black can run his g pawn down the board, but it must be too slow.
Sep-24-18  saturn2: I just tried out two continuations to convince myself it is really 1-0

43...Rxh2 44. e5 Rd2+ 45. Ke3 Rh2 46. Rb7+ Kg8 47. f6 g4 48. f7+ Kf8 49. e6 g3

43 ..Rxh2 44. e5 g4 45. Rb7+ Kf8 46. f6 g3 47. Rg7 h5 48. e6 h4 49. e7+ Ke8 50. Rg8+

<RookFile black can run his g pawn down the board> I think black cannot support the pawn with the rook well whilst white can come to g7 with the rook as in my second example.
