I personally like this win which I really didn't deserve until the rook sac near the end. He pretty much bullied me in the opening.
Originally posted by DawgHausIt is kind of immediate...once the dust settles the king is stuck on the back two ranks and white has a pawn on a side of the board the black king can't get to..and its passed so white just marches it and mate will be in short order..I think its safe to say that from Rf6+ on that mate is forced..and I meant for this to happen on move 45 as on move 44 Rf6 is not even an available move.
44.Rf6+ is a winning ending but not an immediate mate. Later 48.Rc5+ is shiny but he doesn't have to take - Kb4 49.Rxb6+? Kxc5
Black was winning on the K-side early but it was tricky.

How true, but, I guess his way was easier... It's always easier to win with a Q+B vs K than R+R+B vs K

Of the games I've played here, I really enjoy this one: Game 3190514
I like to see how my opponent's two minor pieces struggle due to my two central pawns, and how both pawns last just long enough for my rook to clear the way for the passed pawn.
