Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-04-12  vinidivici: I really dont understand the motives of the move
56...Kg1(bad) lucky for black the bad move replied by bad move 57.Rb2 (bad). Black could have won easily with 56...Rf7! aiming for Rf2...and thats terribly an EASY WIN, g2 pawn would fall by the king.

With 56...Kg1 (bad move), white could have a tempi to drag his king away from a-file and when the time came, it would have given the rook access to take a7 pawn.

57.Rb2? spoils nothing just like the actual game.

57.Ka5! Rf7 (too late)
now, Rf2 has a cure Rxa7 now with a draw.

if 57...Rc4 58.Ka6 draw
If 57...Rc5 58.Kb4 draw
