Kibitzer's Corner
Sep-06-12  vinidivici: Black made an error and missed the win.
64...Rc1+ ??? with this move black rook forced to h2 square which is no good for rook.and just what we have seen that white rook cut off the black king along the 6th rank.With the h6 and f7 squares are correspond each other, who move first got into zugzwang. If at the end of 66th move black's king at the f7 square (not g7), black would win.

It should be
65.Rg4+ Rg6
66.Rh4 h2+
67.Kg2 Rh6
68.Rg4+ Kf6
69.Rf4+ Kg5
70.Rf1 Kg4
71.Rh1 Rf6
72.Ra1 Rf2+
73.Kh1 Kh3
74.Rb1 g2 mate

if 71.Ra1 then h=Q
72.Rxh Rxh
73.Kxh Kf3 (0-1)
