Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-07-08  patzer2: Rogers' 48. Re7! is a good example of an endgame decoy double attack, which facilitates the win of this Rook and pawn ending.
Jan-19-09  rwbean: It looks like 27 ... Ra6 is a mistake and Johansen just overlooked the consequences of 28. Nd5! eg 28. Nd5 Rxa4? 29. Rxb6 cxb6 30. c7 Rc4 31. Ne7+ Kf7 32. c8=Q etc. or 28... Nxa4 29. Rb7 and 29... Rxc6 isn't possible because of 30. Ne7+. So he should have played 27... Kf7 and then there is no possibility of Ne7+ after Nd5. After 28. Nd5 I guess it was just a matter of (good) technique for Rogers.
Jan-20-09  rwbean: And then I look at the end of the game again with Rybka 3 and Glaurung 2.2, and it shows how fallible even human grandmasters are :)

45 ... Kf1? should lose: 46. h7 Re5+ 47. Kf6 (avoiding Re5+, one move faster than the game) Rh5 48. g4 e2 49. Re7 Rxh7 50. Rxh7 e1=Q 51. Rh1+ and 52. Rxe1 winning; but

45 ... Kf2! draws: 46. h7 Re5+ 47. Kf6 Rh5 48. g4 e2 and 49. gxh5 e1=Q tablebase draw or 49. Re7 Rxh7 tablebase draw.
