Nov-14-04  Knight13: This is one of the best games of Harrwitz vs Williams games.
Nov-25-04  mjk: <Knight13>, perhaps, but 88.♔h2? blunders away the draw <Nalimov>.

  Chessical: One drawing method is:

<88.Rg8> f3 89.Ra8 Kf1 90.Kg3 f2 91.Kf3 Re1 92.Ra2 Re6 =

Jun-11-10  cocker: Position after 69 ♖a1 is considered in Nunn's book, UCE, diagram 54d. White found half a dozen vital moves but went astray with 88 ♔h2 (as pointed out by <mjk>). As well as 88 ♖g8 given by <Chessical>, 88 ♖a8 or 88 ♖b8 would have drawn.

  kbob: and to expand a little on cocker's point, 88. Ra8 or Rb8 would maintain the principle of "three square lateral checking distance" whereby the black king cannot approach the harrassing white rook without losing contact with his passer. Accordingly, note that 88. Rc8 would lose.
