    I'm quite proud to have won this double rook ending (after 22 gxf4). Any thoughts on where I or my opponent could have improved?

    Hi

    in this postion White played the 17.g3 inviting the h-pawn to come
    and rip up the Kingside which in turn left the Rooks invade.
    After the Rooks got in it was a straight forward win.



    17.h3 was a better try then WHite can carry on throwing up Q-side pawns.

    Saw interesting two piece sac for White with a perpetual in the wind.
    Perhaps even more. Looks interesting.

    I'm thinking instead of 19. Bf4, 19. Bg5 hxg3 20 hxg3 Rde8=. I view equality as a success for Black and a "miss" for White, but it is better than bleeding out in a lost ending.

    I thought I should edit for clarity- after ...Rde8 I would expect the probable course would be rook exchanges down the h-file and some tacking around with the Q and B ending until someone messed up or both players tired of it and split the point.
