penguin496: I like 24. h4

penguin496: 65. h5 was the mistake. 65. Ng2 wins. The idea being that white needs to keep at least one pawn on the same color square as those controlled by the black bishop. This ending is analyzed by Euwe in "A Guide to Chess Endings."

penguin496: I ran the end position on my computer chess program and white won.
   May-07-09 A Yurgis vs Botvinnik, 1931 (replies)
penguin496: I think 34...Bc5 also wins. For example 34...Bc5 36 Rxc2 Rc4+ 37 Rfc2(forced) Rc3 and black wins a pawn plus the exchange back. Am I missing something? Of course 34...Rc4 wins easier.

penguin496: Excellent puzzle today for learning rook and pawn vs. rook endgame.
   Apr-10-09 Nisipeanu vs T Oral, 2004 (replies)
penguin496: It seems to me that in the last two puzzles the first move was clear from pure positional considerations. Here moving the pawn to open the line for the bishop and yesterday sacrificing the exchange so the bishop can take the pawn on f7.

penguin496: I thought the theme for the week was leaving greek gifts?

penguin496: team black I vote for Bird's defense.

penguin496: Is there analysis of 14. Qf2? This is seems strongest to me. Immediate threat with the idea of advancing the f pawn.
