Jan-25-05  Jack Rabbit: <Rook v. Two Connected Pawns> from <74 Kxc7>

White could have resigned after <74 -- g4>. The Black Pawns are already advanced, the King is in a sheltered escort position and the White King is just too far away. All Black has to do to win is shuffle forward, which he does.

Mar-21-05  mynameisrandy: Jack Rabbit, I just found your very interesting collection of Rook v. Two Connected Pawns. It's great. You may want to relabel this game in your collection, though. You have it as Rook wins, when the pawns won here.
Apr-14-17  Toribio3: Amazing play GM Gelfand!
