Frozen Rook

Remludar

Here's the end of a game I played recently against a friend of mine. I played the white pieces.   I like this ending b/c of the systematic march of my c pawn up the board creating a second weakness that black couldn't handle.  Any commentary welcome.

it's quite humorous how you kept his rook very busy

Nicely done--but 1 Kd6 was a bit more straightforward (1... Kc8 2 a6).


Ahh yes.  I've got to search just a little longer in my endgames. Workin on that.

I thought so too... my opponent, however, was less amused.
