Jul-22-07  Eyal: Dvoretsky points out in his <Endgame Manual> that Antoshin missed several chances to hold the game here. First with f6 on moves 41-42, since the the advance e5 is an essential part of the attacking side's winning plan in this type of rook endgames with 4 vs. 3 pawns on the same wing (as demonstrated also in Capablanca vs Yates, 1930 and Botvinnik vs Najdorf, 1956); and then with 49...Rf3! 50.Ke5 (50.f5 f6 =) f6+ 51.Kf5 Rf1, and White fails to create the passed e pawn. Instead, 49...Rg3? chases after material gain but lets White create the passed pawn that will cost Black his rook.
