Kibitzer's Corner
Nov-29-13  RookFile: I'm sure white didn't play this endgame right - for one thing, f4 is the last sort of move you want to make with an upcoming queen and rook ending - you want pawns on f2, g3, and h3 or similar. (See numerous Alekhine vs. Capa games from 1927 world championship). However, white's 12. Nxd5 looks like a better try for advantage than 12. Qh5 g6 13. Qxd5 Be6!

as in:

C Hon vs Short, 1986

Dec-01-13  solskytz: In principle I would agree re. the f4 move in this kind of a setup... I know how many times I had to concede a draw against strong players with Q+R vs. Q+R, with a pawn or a couple to the good - because of king safety.

(At times I had to concede a draw, but didn't - so I lost...)

However here, let's say that you don't play f4. How to save the c5 pawn? ...Rc8 is coming... and without it it's drawn anyway (if you can get Carlsen to answer me, better still).
