  Fusilli: Nice. So smooth.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Actually, the Rook, f-pawn and h-pawn versus Rook ending never felt like a matter of technique. I never could wrap my tiny brain cells around the subject, and unlike most amateurs, I studied Rook endings constantly. Relange could have overlooked something here, but I'd be a GM if I could figure out where without the aid of a silicon monster.

  Fusilli: <An Englishman> You are probably right. I suppose that in this type of endgame the side with the rook only can hold if he plays accurately. See for example: Bondarevsky vs Keres, 1939 and Smyslov vs Bondarevsky, 1941
