Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-08-04  mjk: White can hold the draw by improving on 64.♔d3? <Nalimov>
Jan-24-05  Jack Rabbit: <Rook v. Two Connected Pawns> from <59 Kxa8>

The advanced g-Pawn wins. If White were to play <64 Rxh4> then Black just keeps going with <64 -- g7> and the Pawn cannot be stopped.

This is an instance where the fact one of the Pawns is a Rook Pawn is not a factor. In this case, Black did not have to maneuver around it.

Sep-11-06  mjk: But <Jack Rabbit>, 64.♖b8 g2 65.♖f8+ draws, e.g. 65...♔g3 ♔e4 66.♔h2 h5 67.♖g8 ♔f2 68.♖f8+ ♔e1 69.♖g8 h3 70.♔f3 ♔f1 71.♖a8 ♔g1 72.♔g3 ♔h1 73.♖a1+ g1=♕+ 74.♖xg1 ♔xg1 75.♔xh3
Jun-07-07  einneu: white has an easy draw with 58.Rc5! Kg6 (if g3 then a8=Q and the "g" pawn will fall) 59.Rc8 Rf7+ 60.Rc7 Rf8=

In moves 62,63 and even 64 white saves the day with Rb8!

64.Rxh4 loses because after 64...g2 65.Rh8 (threatening Rf8+ and Rg8) the pawn promotes at g1 with check.
