Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-01-08  Resignation Trap: This is a difficult endgame to defend even with lots of time on the clock. But this was a rapid game and White perhaps had only a few seconds for each move.

The position is already lost for White after move 52.

But Black doesn't play the best moves, and here:

he erred with 55...h3? (55...f6! was the only move to force a win)

One key to drawing this endgame is to keep the defending rook on the a7-a8-b8 area of the board in order to be able to give vertical checks from behind as well as horizontal checks.

But here:

White faltered with 57.Rh8+?
Knowing <when> to give vertical checks or horizontal checks is also important. 57.Ra5+! Kh6 58.Ra8 Kg7 59.Ra2 should still draw with perfect play by White.

For Black's forced win with 55...f6, I recommend Shredder Tablebase: http://www.shredderchess.com/online...
