  Calli: Yes, but he can take with the other rook 27.Rxf7 R6xf7 28.Bxf7+ Kxf7 etc
Oct-16-05  BreakOnThru: <Yes, but he can take with the other rook 27.Rxf7 R6xf7 28.Bxf7+ Kxf7 etc> he cant take with the other rook because after 26.Rxf7, blacks other rook is still on h6
Oct-16-05  BreakOnThru: 26.Rxf7 c4 27.Rxf8 Kxf8 28.Bxc4 Qxe4 29.Rd8+ Ke7 30.Qxg5+ Rf6 31.Qxg7+ Kxd8 32.Qxf6+ Kc7 33.Qg7+ Kb6

and white should have no problem wining this endgame

  Calli: You are right. Somehow I started with 27.Rxf7 instead of 26.Rxf7 thus had a rook on f6. (duh!)
Apr-06-12  Karpova: White lost on time (his position was hopeless nonetheless)
Sep-07-16  King.Arthur.Brazil: Positionally speaking, I guess that white had done a big mistake after 23... b4, wtih reply 24. Rd3, eventhough ahead he has 26.Rxf7 winning. But, I prefered 24.Rc5 Qxb2 25.e5! The black B is out of game, the Rh6 has nowhere to go, the Return 26.Rc2 will put the black Q lost in a3 and nothing will stop the following 27.e6! I guess that Rubstein substimed his opponent and when wake up, the mate was around.
