    Edit::: board is flipped!! It is diagram from Black's view.

    White to move.

    From the last night blitz. (Inspired by today's double Rooks draw. If Anand and Gelfand had paid attention to RHP games, they would have never agreed draw so easily... ...)

    Regarding the position above ... Black should win - at first sight.
    And at second.

    it might well be winning but it isn't easy
    eg
    Rg1 Rd7
    Rg2 Rb1
    Ra2 Kc3
    Rgd2 Rd2
    Ra7 is a possible try for white
