  OhioChessFan: This is a very entertaining game. White appears to want the win the whole time. His refusal to exchange on the 22nd and 27th moves shows a draw wasn't his goal. I think White's plan of a3 and b4 was weak. He apparently thought the 2 sets of doubled pawns was a winning positional advantage. But the ensuing exchanges allowed Black's King to enter the fray and dominate the pawn structure in the middle of the board. I still have no idea what the point of 45 Kf2 was. As for the endgame, Black's 53rd move would be a good CG puzzle.

  fredthebear: <whiteshark> Thank you for the visual.

This position is easy to overlook. Another case of where to best place the rooks, generally the most misunderstood (taken for granted) chess piece of all.
