  wwall: Perhaps 43.a4 Ra2 44.Kxf5 Rxa4 45.Ra6 Ra3 46.f4 c4 47.g6 Rg3 48.Kf6 c3 49.Rxa5 Kd6 50.Ra2 Kc5 51.Ra1 c2 52.Rc1 Rg2 53.g7 Kd4 54.Rxc2 and White wins.

Is 50.Ra7+ Kf8 51.Ke5 any improvement or is this a dead draw?

  ketchuplover: What about 26.Rxf6?
May-05-08  Halofire: what about 26.Rxf6? so you lose a rook and for what?
May-05-08  Halofire: 26.Rxf6 makes no sense at all.
Apr-09-19  groog: Halofire, after a quick look, if kxf6, then f4 which doesn't look too bad, in fact (without using an engine) it might lead to an interesting tussle. Just saying.
