Kibitzer's Corner
Feb-15-05  Poisonpawns: Black played this endgame so wildly,instead of putting the Rook on c1 to tie whites King or Rook to the pawn he moves the rook around without a real plan just indescrimanetly attacking.Blacks King is in an excellent position to draw
Aug-07-06  waddayaplay: Perhaps 57..Kd6 would draw. For example 58.♔d4 ♖d1+ 59.♖d3 ♖a1 60.♖c3 ♖d1+ 61.♔e4 ♔c5 62.♖a3 ( 62.♔e5 ♖h1 63.♖f6 ♖h3! 64.♔xg6 h4= ) 62..♖e1+ 63.♔f3 ♖e6 64.♖e3 ♖a6 65.♖e4 ♔b4 66.♔g2 ♖c6 67.♔h3 ♖a6 68.g4 hxg4+ 69.♔xg4 ♖a1 70.♔g5 ♖g1+ 71.♔f6 ♔c5 and white can't advance.
Sep-17-20  FellowChessPlayer: Lots of mistakes in the endgame, with black's 55..Re1+ being the last one that loses him the game.
