Apr-16-06  suenteus po 147: Excellent endgame play from Tartakower here. Very instructive (as if we needed more rook and pawn endgames).
May-14-08  whiteshark: position after <51...Kxe6> is a TB win in 25

May-14-08  whiteshark: <suenteus po 147> I think it's more likely that black ruined the endgame, somewhere. :D

<My first and only tournament encounter with Dr. T was in Hastings. He was White. I played a Sicilian Defense. He playing the opening incorrectly and after about 15 moves, I was a pawn up with no problems. He offered a draw. Naturally, I refused cockily thinking, “If this old man plays the rest of this game just as he played the opening, he won’t be around very long. Oh, how mistaken I was. We reached an ending with two Rooks and pawns on each side. I played quickly and confidently. Soon I was in a terrible bind. I would have liked to offer a draw, but I was ashamed. Every move he made was another nail in my coffin. I was totally humiliated. It was one of the best endgame lessons I ever got, but more than that it taught me respect.>
