Kibitzer's Corner
Apr-03-15  Hot Logic: Fritz is giving me 62.Kc5 (which was the move I was expecting to see) as drawn @32ply. Then it seems that Rc7 and Rd6-d8-d6 ad infinitum follows. Rh5+ just loses the pawn and can not hold onto the b-pawn either.

Is there anything that I have missed? Or is 62.Kc5 a clear draw?

Apr-03-15  Nerwal: 62. ♔c5 indeed draws and is the principled move (positions with the king blocking the pawns are the main drawing ressource in this ♖♙♙ vs ♖ endgame). White probably feared 62. ♔c5 ♖h5+ 63. ♔xc6 when her king is cut - White draws only because the black king is also cut; it would be lost with the white rook standing at a6 or g6. But 62. ♔c3 is also enough for a draw and there were further adventures. Overall, White played this endgame quite poorly.
