Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-24-05  Jack Rabbit: The Pawns are advanced, but the enemy King is able to reach the mass just the nick of time as the defending Rook attacks from the rear.

The final position is an obvious draw: <59 g6 Kg5 60 h8=Q> not 60 Kg8? Kxg6 and Black wins <61 Rxh8 61 Kxh8 Kxg6>.

  Bubo bubo: <<59 g6 Kg5 60 h8=Q> not 60 Kg8? Kxg6 and Black wins> 60...Kxg6 61.h8Q is still a draw.

After 59...Kg5 White may also try 60.Kf7, hoping for 60...Rf1+??, but if the rook stubbornly stays on the h-file, White can make no progress, since 61.g7 Rxh7 pins the g-pawn.
