    Kevin C, I am impressed by your tactical skill. Exhibited a few times now on Chess Chat.

    Thanks. Alas, at the other end of the scale is my complete and utter ineptitude in rook and pawn endgames...

    Indeed: that mating combo had to be foreseen several moves ahead otherwise the Pd3 would cost a rook.

    It is a very nice combo, don't get me wrong, but playing Rd7 after Black plays d3 would stop the pawn for nothing, wouldn't it? Anyway nice was to wrap up the game
