Aug-10-12  ptrckmackay: The Lucena position is achieved in a few more moves and white wins the game.

Back to the basic rook and pawn endgames!!!

  HeMateMe: This would be a good training position to set up at home against software. Use the position when Queens and both Rooks are on the board, and try to win with white. These positions come up frequently.
Aug-11-12  Ulhumbrus: One justification for 9...b5 instead of 9...Nf6 is that after 9...Nf6 10 Bxa7 Rxa7 White is able to prevent the move 10...b5 by 11 c4.
Apr-26-15  Mr. V: Can Black make a draw with 62...g5?
