Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-16-02  ughaibu: Another magical endgame.
Oct-09-06  Knight13: Rook on the seventh rank. Very active, very useful, very "restrictful."
May-07-09  paladin at large: A wonderful endgame which deserves a revisit.

  Mateo: Interesting Rook ending indeed. However, 51.Rxg5?? was a blunder. 51.hxg5 may hold.
Mar-09-16  ndg2: Akiba, you rook endgame god!

  Mateo: 48...Ra5! was simpler and could be much stronger than what Rubinstein played. If White trades Rooks, then you have the same winning pattern than in the game actually played somo moves later. If he does not trade, he is losing a pawn.
