  Peligroso Patzer: Fridstein's loss to Lutikov in this game: G Fridstein vs Lutikov, 1954 is an instructive tragicomedy. In the final position:

click for larger view

the draw was still to be saved with <60. Rb4+> (so that after <60. … Kd3 61. Rxb3>, the remaining Black pawn would be pinned), as noted in Dvoretsky, Mark, “Dvoretsky’s Endgame Manual”, 2nd Edition (Russell Enterprises, Inc., ©2006), p. 140 (Diagram 8-25). Instead, Fridstein resigned(?)!

One lesson to be taken from this example: Two connected passers on the 6th rank (algebraic third for Black) do not <always> win against a Rook (even with the defender's King not particpating in efforts to prevent the pawns' advance). One always needs to analyze the tactical possibilities.

Nov-20-19  kashewnut: GSF was a pretty good postal player too: pity there are none of those games featured here.
Dec-02-20  cameosis: he was born in st. petersburg, not moscow. he DIED in moscow on october 9, 2001.!
