Sep-12-12  ozmikey: 48. Rxa5?! looks wrong to me in this ending. I'm not sure, but I think Black would have a hard time winning after 48. Rxg5 Rf4+ 49. Kc3 Rxa4 50. Rh5 Rxg4 51. Rxa5.
Sep-13-12  master of defence: This score seems wrong, looks a draw for me after 54.Kf5.
Sep-13-12  Shams: <m.o.d.> 54.Kf5 g4 55.?
Sep-13-12  rapidcitychess: <master of defense>

Shams is saying what you could know with some endgame studying - ♖ ♙♙ vs ♖ is always a win for the two pawns, with the exception if one pawn can be immediately won.

Sep-13-12  rapidcitychess: <Shams> I suppose I did miss that. >.<

Yes, I still play the Najdorf (when my opponent lets me), but 99% they don't play Bg5, and even if they do they deviate somewhere later.

*tears and pity*

Sep-13-12  Shams: I deleted my post because I'm still working out the lines after 55.Rb7+ which was doubtless <m.o.d.>'s idea. Black does need to be careful.
Sep-13-12  rapidcitychess: <Shams>

You do make my post look silly, don't you!

Anyway, I think 55...Kh6 56.Rb6+ Kh5 hiding behind the king works. I foresee: 57.Rb7 Ra6 58.Rg7 h2 0-1

Of course, He can stay on the b-file, but it's just delaying the inevitable.

Sep-13-12  Shams: Ok, I cheated. After 54...g4 Shredder is leading me to a position that it still says is winning for Black at -3.28, but the line it recommends just repeats the position.

The simple 54...Kh6 is much better, probably essential to find.
