Both FinalGen and Stockfish have this position as equal.

Muller says <"If the defender is reasonably placed this endgame is tenable."> - <"as 'only' 42% of the games are won.">

Game continued:
72...Rc1+ 73. Kb4 Rf1 74. Kc5 Rf8 75. Rg6 Rh8 76. b6 Rd8 77. Rd6

Black to move at 77

Black should not be afraid of the pawn ending as 77...Rxd6 78. Kxd6 Ka8 79. a6 Kb8 80. a7+ Ka8 leads to stalemate

Game continued:
77...Rc8+ 78. Kd5 Re8 79. Re6 Rd8+ 80. Ke5 Kc8
81. Re7 Rd1 82. Rc7+ Kb8 83. Rc5 Rd2 84. Ke6 Rd1 85. Rd5 Re1+ 86. Kd7 Rh1 87. Re5 Rd1+ 88. Ke8 Kc8 89. Kf7 Rf1+ 90. Ke7 Rd1 91. Rc5+ Kb8 92. Rf5 Re1+ 93. Kd6 Rd1+ 94. Kc5 Rd8 95. Rd5 Rh8 96.

104...Kd8?? and White falls into the trap

Again Black should opt for the pawn ending as
104...Rh7+ 105. Ke6 Rxe7+ 106. Kxe7 is drawn

Game continued:
105. a6! bxa6 106. Re8+ Kd7 107. b7 Rh7+ 108. Kg6 1-0

Aug-10-18  dumbgai: R+3 vs R+2 on the same side should be an easy draw, I would think. Black screwed up here.
