Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-17-12  12.12.12: fantastic endgame!!
Dec-18-12  goldenbear: I might have played 47.p=N+, but Capa's way is easier.
Dec-18-12  12.12.12: agreed
Dec-19-12  Conrad93: 18.Qb6+ wins faster.
Dec-25-14  drunknite: 44 c7 seems to draw without much trouble, the black R comes to h3 to take the g pawn with check and then then the h pawn (possibly on g2 or h2). the pawn on c7 ensures that the white R cannot help to queen on h1, cause after Rxh1 and ...Rxh1 the pawn on c7 queens.

with this plan the a pawn is left on board and white K and R return for q side for a philidor position or other drawing technique.
