Well, they say the winner is the one who blunders next-to-last.

  g15713: My fault for not analyzing this game further but this particular double rook ending was difficult for me to understand...

<"In general, a small material advantage in a double rook ending (for example, a pawn) promises the attacking side more winning chances than in a single rook ending. One of the obvious reasons for this is that the extra pawn can provide important cover for the king. Also lone pawns are more exposed to attack in double rook endings."> John Emms
