Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-28-12  vinidivici: Guys, i know 55.h4 is a good move, it prevents the checkmate after Qd3. I played to my engine after move 54. And done the 55.Rh8 and got a draw also. But maybe my second engine isnt so strong. Or maybe my move:55.Rh8 is also strong.

56.Rh3 d3

58.Rc8+ Kd4
59.Rd8+ Ke4

65.Rxg4+ Kf3
66.Rg8 d2
67.Rd8 draw

Aug-28-12  vinidivici: have done the calculate myself.
55...Rxh4 is a weak move. giving the opponent a draw in the rooks endgames.

55...Rg1 is strong move.
The point is to make 2 passed pawns altogether meanwhile white passed pawn could be guarded by the rook. 55...Rg1 (a must)
56.ke2 d3+

70.Ke3 Kg1
71.Rh6 g2
72.Ke2...reach the lucena position (0-1)

Aug-29-12  vinidivici: comments?
Aug-30-12  Shams: <vini> 59.h5 an improvement?
Aug-30-12  vinidivici: <shams> nope. 59.h5 then 59...Rh2. 60.Rxg4+ Kc3

Like what i've said h-pawn guarded then with mate threat, white king should move from strong position and now blacks joint king and pawn just too much for white king.

Nov-24-20  Straclonoor: After 53.Rxd8+ only 53....Ke5 wins.
