  Sneaky: In the final position, suggest a move for White. If 65.Ra8 Rxh3 Black can win as the white King is too far from the a-file; he's going to get cut off and be unable to help stop the pawn.

If 65.Rb3 a2 66.Ra3 a1=Q! 67.Rxa1 Rh1+ leaving an easy endgame where the white pawn is not nearly close enough to queening to make any difference.

And 65.Rc8+ is just a "fair wind" which helps the King get over to the a-pawn, something he needs to do anyhow.

Jun-13-04  drukenknight: Umm the final position looks bad, what if we back up to move 63? And try 63 Kg1 Rc2 64 Rg4+ is this any better? ALso, isnt this ending a draw in theory?

  beatgiant: <isnt this ending a draw in theory?>

There are some theoretically drawn rook and pawn endgames with rim pawns, but I don't think this is one of them because of the positional factors (Black's king and rook are in advanced positions).

White will have to give a rook for Black's pawn, and White's king is cut off from supporting the h-pawn. For example, 63 ♔g1 ♖c2 64. ♖g4+ ♔b3 65. ♖g8 a3 66. ♖b8+ ♔c3 67. ♖c8+ ♔d2 68. ♖d8+ ♔c1 .
