    You didn't even have to bother with putting your rook on the third rank to draw in the final position - you could have put your king on g1 and your rook on a1 and shuffled your rook along the first rank to achieve a draw. But anyway nice game I hope one day to reach your level in chess!

           Yeah, you're right, i hadn't thought about that. The black rook at b3 really restricted a lot your king. But I also think that, a rook without support is easy to abandon its position, even if it can be threaten only by the opposite king.

    The point of b7 is that there's no way I can win, and the drawing technique involves my rook on the third rank, so b7 was to deflect his rook.

    Nice match, smart moves.Cool

                      But why did you surrender your pawn in 52. b7 ?  I'm thinking something like Ra6, and then possibly had the chance to went on b7. So, you would have threatened the black king -if he was still there and hadn't threatened yours, by Rb2.. Ok, he may won't be, but it could be a good start of an anti-draw showSmile
