  Gypsy: A rook andgame of theoretical importance.
May-20-06  square dance: definitely worth studying.
Oct-31-06  Dres1: gotta keep the white rook attatched to the a pawn so that it can not improve its position. that's why the black rook is either putting pressure on the pawn sideways, or checking the king.
Dec-29-06  sucaba: Instead of 45. _ ♔f6, Black could keep the draw with 45. _ ♖c2, 45. _ ♔h7, 45. _ ♔g6, or 45. _ ♔h6.

White could win with 46. ♖f4+ #38, 46. a3 #41, 46. ♔h5 #41, or 46. ♔f3 #54.
