  Peligroso Patzer: From page 3 of the thread at Russian Superfinals (Women) (2007)

<whiteshark: Finally Nadezhda Kosintseva and Ekaterina Korbut drew their ending. At one point there was a study-like win for black with <58...Rb3!!>:

and ..Rd3/..Rd1 will be decisive.>

Great find, <whiteshark>.

Dec-28-07  Chesstalesfan: 59Re8 Rd3 60Rd8+ Rc4 61b3+ Rxb3 62Rc8+ and so on
Dec-30-07  Kwesi: Also, white missed <72.Kd4!>, stealing the opposition ;->
Dec-30-07  Chesstalesfan: I liked the joke Kwesi. But this apart, what do you thing on the move 59 Re8 in my previous post adjacent to the post of Peligroso Panzer? Could it save the draw for the white?
Dec-30-07  Kwesi: 59.Re8 Rd3
60.Rd8+ Kc4
61.b3+ Rxb3
62.Rc8+ <Kd3>

now both:
a) 63.Kf2 Kd2
64.Rd8+ Rd3
65.Re8 Rxa3


b) 63.Rd8+ Ke3
64.Re8+ Kd2
65.Kf2 Rxa3

lead to the same position, which is a tablebase win for black ( ) - the king can just march towards the rook and ...Ra1 is coming
