I made a bad mistake in last move, and the game drawn by agreement!
After 49.Rxf6, the position is a book draw.
This of course does not mean white should give up trying to win: the position is full of pitholes.
For example, after 51...Kg8, tablebases inform us that white wins (in many moves) after 52.Rf5, and this is the only move to win.
I didn't see that win of a rook, but if I had seen it, as I didn't play as well as you did in the whole game, I would have offered a draw...Anyway, it's done !
Thanks for your good sportsmanship.
But What if Black checkes permanently in your analysis instead of 57. ... Rxh6
In your line, you're going the wrong way with your king. You should find a way to move your king up and block the checks with your rook, something like:
Look the first diagram, the blue lines after move 54.kf5. It will be something like that!
I think you could have won but it's true that your line makes me doubt...My chess software can't play the endgames so it won't tell me what's the result ( it loses against me on any king and pawn endgames ). We should find someone who knows better to explain to us...
For an abbreviated, but quite consistent theoretical coverage of the endgame of rooks with a+c (or f+h) pawns, you should consult the Keres classic "practical chess endings".
@ IM pfren
Thanks. I should read more!
You gave all position was nice!
The answer is easy, if I'm white and you black, then yes, white wins. If I'm black, then no.
I hope that helps :)
btw, good games. You have been improving your game very fast, good job.
Thanks. I'll use your Advice!
I think Now I can win with white against you! :-)
