Jul-05-04  Tennyson: Surely this could have been a win for Bogoljubov if he had maintained his rook pawn ending better. He had a two pawn advantage...

  Honza Cervenka: <Shadout Mapes: Hmm.... maybe a perpetual?> No, just a dead draw after 54...Rg5 55.Rxg5 Kxg5 56.b5 g3 57.b6 g2 58.b7 g1=Q 59.b8=Q Qc1+ 60.Kd4 and black cannot keep Pc4.

<Tennyson> Yes, black could have won here, for example 46...Kf7! 47.Rg1! Kg7! (A littke triangle leads to zugzwang.) 48.Rg2 Kf6 49.Rf2+ Ke5 50.Rg2 Kf4 51.Rf2+ Kg3 52.Rf1 g5 53.Rg1+ Kf4 54.Rf1+ Ke3 55.Rg1 Rg6 (diagram) and black wins easily.
