Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-24-05  Jack Rabbit: <Rook v. Two Connected Pawns> from <94 -- Rxa1>

Immediately, the White Pawn is on the seventh rank. If instead of 97 -- Kd4, Black plays <97 -- Rd8> then of course <98 Ke7> would force resignation.

Sep-03-09  WhiteRook48: when the pawns advance above the fifth rank, the rook is in trouble

  wwall: Instead of 85...Kb3, Black could have tried 85...a3, but that also loses after 86.Rb8+ Ka5 (56...Ka4? 57.Kc4 wins for White) 87.d5 Rg1 88.e4 Ka4 89.d6 a2 90.Ra8+ Kb5 91.Rxa2 Kc6 92.e5, and White wins.
Jun-18-18  Omnipotent00001: 84. Rf8 mates in 52 moves.
Apr-09-19  TrczkWszczinsk: Probably I would have tried to "save tempos" with 92. Ke6?? but then 92... Rxd6 93. Kxd6 stalemate is a bad surprise!

  DaltriDiluvi: 84. Rf8! is the only winning move, and so is 85. Kd3!. I'm impressed that Mr. Kurajica found both these moves.
