Default basics endings

Anyone interersted in commenting that ending?

It seems a "rook plus pawn" ending any +2000 player should know, ... but
maybe time pressure forced Magnus to play wrong

Well, on move 73 you have to find Kg6 since all other moves lose - is
it really that easy that every player above 2000 would see it? The
check is something many players would make automatically, and young
players aren't always the best at endings.....

The endgame after 42...Rxb4 seems an easy draw. I have seen players with
no interest in continue playing in similar positions agreeing draw.

I think black have not played acurately that ending no matter the game
is draw with 73...Kg6!!. I though it would be interesting to discuss
here what were safe aproaches to that ending.

The ending R+P vs R reached after 64th move is in many ending manuals.
The previous ending R+2P vs R+P is very know too.

That view is totally different than mine. There were often 10 or more
drawing moves at each move throughout that game; I saw nothing wrong
with black's play other than that it wasn't the easiest way to secure
the draw - many roads to Rome and all that.

I also think that many games that are given up as "easy" or "obvious"
draws by players of middling strength are not so easy or obvious - in
fact they choose the draw in order not to have to engage in the play
required to win or draw.

Just my opinion, of course. One reason I don't follow too many current
GM games is the horrible endgame play one finds there - again, my
opinion.

I have not seen that game with tablebases.
I fact I have not tablebases.

The first question I have about that game is:

- 59...f6 seems to hold the equality but maybe white can not progress in
that position and it's not necessary.

- 69...Re2 seems easier. White need to defend his e pawn with Re8 in
order to move his king, and in that case Ra1 or Ra2 would be acurate.
But with any move which does not prepare that idea, black can just wait
with Re2-e1.

Respect to quality of GM endings: I think we have very much to learn
from them, and today mistakes are explained by fast time controls.

I certainly will agree with the second part. However, I also think
there is an overemphasis on opening preparation and an underemphasis on
the endgame today at all levels. As to very much to learn from them,
investing in Cheron makes more sense to me, however dated.

Because, as I've said with the 1/x rule, the rating system favors the player
who is stronger in the opening, simply because every chessgame has an
opening. To that extent, it is like the line of scrimmage in football in
that it is usually the key battleground.

That GMs can get away with being horrible in the ending only confirms that,
otherwise they wouldn't be GMs because they would lose too many rating
points.

Money is not "game."
Looks are not "game."
Social status or value is not "game."
Those are the things that game makes unnecessary.

A seduction guru who teaches you that looks, money or status is game is not
teaching you "game," but how to be an AFC. He uses his students' money to
get women and laughs that "AFCs pay my rent."

I'll let someone else comment on the absolutely HORRIBLE logic used in
the above post by our notorious resident "openings grandmaster."

Matt, it's not necessary to post `that was rubbish' every time Ray
posts. We all know that and by doing this, you're just doubling the
number of useless posts. Stick to posting about chess -- it's much
more interesting.
