Dec-18-08  just a kid: This is an interesting game to see the two pawns beat the rook.The King was so far away on a1 that the rook can't defend the pawn storm.
Jul-22-09  Knight13: 28...a6?? Why drop that e6 pawn?
Is this a joke?

  wwall: 42...c3 is too risky. Black needs to centralize his king and play 42...Kc5, and if 43.Rc8+, then 43...Kd4.

Instead of 50.Rc5, White should try 50.Rh3 a4 51.g5 and 52.h6 looks best and a win for White.

Instead of 51.Rb5, I think 51.Rc1 and 52.Rh1 looks stronger.

55...a1=Q looks like the losing move. Black should be able to draw this by moving the rook to b6 or c6 or d6 or e6 (55...Rf6 fails to g5). Now if 56.g5, Black can check the enemy king and win.

Sep-28-15  ndg2: Those two players probably counted as good back in their days. But they both mishandled every phase of the game, especially the endgame. Every advanced club plsyer would play this better nowadays.
