Kibitzer's Corner
May-06-15  A.T PhoneHome: Nice ending position. I'd hate to be that White Rook... That White h-pawn is pinned to Rook which means bad news for Gipslis' Rook!

With that distant queenside pawn free to advance, this game is all but hopeless for White. By capturing that g6 pawn on move 53, Korchnoi got the chance to "lock up" White's Rook and he did.

May-25-18  Toribio3: Korchnoi is really an elegant master of rook and pawn end games!
