Dec-27-09  birthtimes: How does one get to be a 2300+ player and not know how to play rook endgames?

  OhioChessFan: I ran it through Fritz. He says 38. Re1 was the start of the problems, though maybe there was a time trouble issue. 38. Rg1+ and it's pretty hard to avoid a perpetual. eg 38. Rg1+ Kf6 39. Rh6+ Kf7 40. Rh7+ Kf6 etc etc

If the King moves to the e file, then Re1 keeps the Knight in place. 42. hxg5 is a mystery to me. Why move the Pawn adjacent to the f Pawn and allow Black's King to sit in the caddy corner? The position after Black's 44th move is lost.

  Gilmoy: <OhioChessFan: 42. hxg5 is a mystery to me.> Well, 42.Rxg5+ Kf6 soon moves the h-pawn adjacent to the rest of the captured pieces ...

  OhioChessFan: <Gilmoy> true, but it takes the King away from the f Pawn for a crucial move or two. Or keeps the Rook from c8.
