  Mateo: I suppose that if such an ending expert like the swedish Capablanca did not play 25. Nb7 Rb7 26. Rc6 Rc6 27. Rc6 Rb2 28. Rc5 a4 29. Rc4 Ra2 30. Ra4, this is because, despite the material advantage, he thought that would be a drawn rook ending.

Miles should repeat the moves with 38... Kf6, instead of 38... Rd7. But I think that after 39. hg hg 40. e4 fe 41. Ke4, if Black just waits, White go with the king to c5 with good winning prospects. So Black will have to sac the b5 pawn to avoid this. Andersson keeps winning chances on the long run.

Activity is critical in almost all rook endgames. In your line <39. hg hg 40. e4 fe 41. Ke4 <41... Re7+ 42.Kd4 Re2! 43.Rxb5 Ra2>> should reach this main goal.

Blck will regain the pawn and his rook is having an active position in White's hinterland.
