Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-05-09  birthtimes: Schlechter could have won the endgame if 35. Rd8 g6 36. Kd2 Ra5 37. Rh8 h5 38. Rf8 Ra7 39. Ke3 Re7+ 40. Kf4 Kd5 41. Kg5 Ke6 42. f4 Rc7 43. Re8+ Kd7 44. Re2 Rc5+ 45. Kf6 ...

The idea is to first bring the rook down to d8, then attack the h7 pawn from behind so that it moves, then attack the f7 pawn from behind so that it moves or so that it ties its rook down for protection, then bring the king to the kingside and deeply infiltrate the enemy's flank, and finally advance the f2 pawn, thereby threatening a further weakening of Black's kingside pawns...

Sep-05-09  birthtimes: Or, similarly, if 35. Rd8 g6 36. Kd2 Ra5 37. Rh8 h5 38. Rf8 Ra7 39. Ke3 Kd6 40. Kf4 Ra4+ 41. Kg5 Ra5+ 42. Kh6 Ke7 43. Rc8 h4 44. f4 hxg3 45. hxg3 Ra3 46. c3 Ra2 47. Kg7 Rg2 48. Rc7+ Kd6 49. Rxf7 Rxg3 50. Rf6+ Kd5 51. Rxg6 Rf3 52. c4+ Kxc4 53. Rg4 Kd5 54. Kf6 Ra3 55. f5 Ra6+ 56. Kg5 Ke5 57. Rb4 Ra3 58. Rb5+ Kd6 59. Kg6 Rg3+ 60. Kf7 and wins...
