Jan-28-14  joddon: after move 58 , there is no hope left for white as he has to deal with three isolated pawns that have absolutely no control over anything in the end.......however white demonstrates a very hard attempt in trying to equalize although some players would get immediately intangled and confused on the board by moving the king around unnecessarily towards the pawns.focusing the rook on the pawn was great to see.if two players were more aware of their expertise then castling as early as 11 and 14 is too early if you know its gonna be hard to penetrate!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!its still very common to see this game in modern day and even times later.

  Fusilli: 62.a6 was the best defense, or white will simply see the black king come up to a6 and the a-pawn fall unceremoniously. But then 67.Rh3 is a bad follow up. White should give up the useless g-pawn to have an active rook. The rook endgame with rook & bishop pawns is not that easy to win. There are a few examples of draws out there. For example, Bondarevsky vs Keres, 1939, Smyslov vs Bondarevsky, 1941.
