    I do find this game worthwhile, thank you Dzindzi!  That said, the pawn endgame that follows after ...Rg1 is drawn! Instead, I found ...Rf1+ and that wins. So your judgment was right. ...Rf1+ gains a whole tempo  over the variation played in the game (if Ke8, then ...Rg1 Kf7 and ...e4 wins).

    @zezpwn44 I could not find a win either in the pawn ending after Rxg8.  Tablebase says this is drawn, so there is a definitive answer...

    Are you sure the king-and-pawn endgame mentioned near the end as "easily winning" is winning at all? As a 2000 USCF player, I certainly couldn't find an easy win for black, and after putting it into Houdini, it couldn't either! Unless I made a mistake somehow I'm not so sure it's an easy win...

    I see GM Dzindzichashvili is another Hearts of Darkness fan!

    Very informative. It certainly gives me hope of advancing when I see the many mistakes of higher rated players.
