    Instead of 31.Nd7+ 31.Qe7 wins.
    No TB's for me, just your basic Rook and Knight mating patern.
    31..Qxe7 (anything else just sheds a load of material.) 32.Rxe7

    I'll have a quick look at the endgame...

    here at move 51 you can go after his bishop with Nc5, which he must then give up for your b pawn, then you grab his c pawn with your king. He then gets a dangerous looking h pawn but with careful use of your f pawn your knight easily gets back if it needs to stop his h pawn leaving your f pawn free to queen

    57...Kg4 is inaccurate Kg2 allows black to hold out a little longer.

    I guess the engine you're using doesn't have an endgame tablebase.

    That might explain this game Game 10360875

    I didnt use an engine for this. And my game your mentioned, it was clearly a draw due to the back rank defense. No engine and tablebase is needed.

    'That might explain this Game 10360875' (unhidden!)

    At least it's good to know the 50 move rule works after the update.

    In Blog 153 I covered loads of RHP wins in totally drawn Rook Endings.
    (and that includes bare Rook v bare Rook)

    One my best Blogs, it is one that I certainly enjoyed doing.
    These two examples are good.

    The question is why did you not accept the draw offer ?

    Because he was abusive and keep on sending me abusive messages.

    Were they like "WTF are you trying to do? Post your rook on every possible square before we draw this?" 😛
    It makes little sense to prolong a game with an abusive opponent. Chess players should be frank and blunt and to the point, but you don't deserve to be abused. So opt out, it's better for your soul my friend.

    Because I reported him. The longer I prolong, the higher the chance Russ took action. Unfortunately, Russ is so busy that even now he has not read my message. According to my sent mail, it is still unread. Anyway, the abused started way before it was a clear draw. He was offering draw and writing unwanted messages every move.
