Perhaps the loss was on time.

  perfidious: Maybe so, but this ending affords the side with the extra pawn greater winning chances than the typical R+4 vs R+3 would.
May-15-16  offramp: Aye. And with the pawn on b4, instead of b5 or b6, the black rook cannot remain behind the pawn. White can stabilise his pawns on the kingside then bring his king over.

It's resignable; I suppose Ligterink thought, "If I don't resign now I'll have to play another 30 moves before I can resign." Do you know what I mean, <Perfidious>?
