  tpstar: Nice technique in the Q vs R endgame. When the defending side also has a Pawn, sometimes they can create a fortress to draw but here the Pawn was quickly lost. White tried to set up a third rank defense except 60 ... Qc2 broke it down (61. Ra3? Qc1+; 61. Rh3 Kg4). Once the K & R were far apart, White had to beware forking checks, then 68 ... Qb6 was the coupe de grace, threatening the Rook plus 69 ... Qb1#. On 70. Rc1 Qd3+ 71. Ke1 Qe2#.
