Here is a game I played against a strong player,I lost by a pawn diffrence.
1) 2000 on chesscube is not a strong player.
2) going into a lost R&P ending is not "nearly draw". Not even in the same ballpark.
I swear I have seen this exact endgame before and just spent half an hour fruitlessly searching for it. It is (unless I remember wrongly) DRAWN!
What made me remember is this: 41...Ra4+? 42. Kg5 (draws!) Ra5+ 43. Kh6 and shuffling the rook along the sixth, since black's rook can't move without dropping a pawn. If the black king marches west to his pawn the rook checks him all around from the g-file, e.g. 43...Ke7 44. Rg6 Kd7 45. Rg7+ and spamming until black gives up, or even 45...Kc6 46. Rg6+ Kb5?? 47. Rg5+ Kb4 48. Rxa4 Kxa5 49. Kxh5 with a win!
Seriously, deja vu. If you trust my memory, I think it was FancyKnight who found the line.
