  tamar: <whiteshark> Thanks. 10 h4 does not look too effective, judging from these two games.

But the idea of getting the rook active through Rh3 is definitely interesting.

  Penguincw: Held Sasikiran to a draw, in a fairly interesting endgame, where black wanted to exchange queens, to force one of their passed pawn to the 1st rank.
