Endgame Lab - Rook Endings

Endgame Lab


Black to move and draw:


Answer{Drag over to expose}:
[I. Rogers (2535) - Sirov (2580), Groningen 1990: 1... Kg2? (1... Kg3! 2. Rh8 f5+ 3. Kxf5 Kxf3 4. Rxh2 Kg3=) After this initial error, White demostrates an excellent display of shouldering the opposing king away from defending it's pawn: 2. Kxf4 h1=Q 3. Rxh1 Kxh1 4. Kg3!! (4... Kg1 5. f4 Kf1 6. Kf3 Ke1 7. f5 Kd2 8. Ke4 Kc3 9. Kd5 Kb4 10. f6 +-) 1-0
]
