White wins this game by Black sacrificing his rook.

If you're looking for a solution where White wins even if Black is trying, there isn't one.

There is no stopping black from swapping his rook for the pawn. Salvaging a draw can be as good as a win and I suggest that's what's happened here.

After 1.f7  re5+  2.kg4  re4+  3.kg3  re3+  4.kf2  re4  we reach to this position:

White cannot possibly win. Q+K vs R+K is a draw if there aren't any pawns.

1. f=Qf8

dear helltank! please pay attention to that position. the pawn are now free and the rock cannot attack it! but what's the winnig move? is it f8=queen?

• 14 months ago · Quote · #17

then black play rf4+ and queen takes rock and it cause stalemate! but find a way to win!!!

Q+K vs R+K is not a draw. I've analyzed it.

Then take rook and check-mate. Black rook on h4 will die after Kg3.

First, Q+K vs. R+K is a win, but hard to do.

Second, from the position above, it is still a draw! After 5.f8=R (I guess this is what you were thinking of since it resembles the Saavedra study. If the Black rook was on e4 this would be a win for White. As it is though, with the rook on g4 Black can just play:) 5...Rg2+ and this is still drawn.
