Apr-26-05  Pawn Ambush: The Sultan stops the Rook and Pawn ending Genius.
May-10-09  blacksburg: very impressive that Khan survived the position after 53.Rxh4 against Rubinstein. white has 2 connected passers, and black has 3 isolated pawns as targets. quite remarkable, considering some of the rook endings that Rubinstein won that looked dead drawn at first glance.

  whiteshark: <52...e5??> was a terrible blunder, but Rubinstein missed to dissect the black position with <53.Rf6!! Qc5> what else? <54.b4!!> knock out.

Nov-02-12  Sukhjinder: seems like 72. Kh2 was a mistake from engine Deep Rybka 4.1 32w suggests 72. Kf3 with advantage of +4.96 (after Kh2 advantage drops to +2.80)....and the final blunder comes at 74. my engine suggests 74. Kh3 with adv of +4.46 or 74. Rg2 with adv of +1.89 but after 72. Re6 the position becomes equal....Anyways gr8 fight by Mir Sultan Khan...
