Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-15-09  Eduardo Leon: Awesome rook ending technique. I love how black offers a rook (60...♖a3) and then white turns it into a sacrifice of his own rook (61.♔e7), which finally black declines. And, when it seems like black has finally managed to draw it (65...♖h5), white comes up with a nice little surprise (66.g7+ ♔g8 67. f7+! ♔xg7 68.♖g1+, which takes the white rook away from where the black rook might start bothering it again... with check).
