Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-20-12  vinidivici: The position of the endgame beginning from move 89 is the Phillidor position. Its the one of the earliest positions that i learned with all kind rooks ending in my childhood so i memorized fully the variations. And thanks to the user to give me the link to this game in the Jan Timman vs Christopher Lutz board <Simon>.

89...Rb2??? resulting Draw but fortunately for black, white made mistakes along the way.

90.Re8 Rg5
91.Kc1 Rb5...0-1

In the actual line white made error
92.Rd7???...LOSE...permits King to c3 (Kc3) and after 93.Rc7+ Bc4 (threatening mate) 94.Kc1 Re2 95.Kd1 Re5
96.Rc8 Ra5...0-1
another variation 93...Ke1 happened in the actual game.

So the easiest to draw is 92.Ke1/Kc1 if black made a waiting policy e,g Ra2 then white king back to Kd1. If black king go to c3 then king go to e1 trying to escape if rook checking.

Noted that if at the end of the move 88 if white rook in the d7 (instead e7), whoever to move, black still win although its more complicated. White rook's best place in the 7th rank but With the best attack and best defense white rook would forced slowly to go to the 8th rank and finally 6th rank(worst place) where it would finally meet its fate.
