Technique in rook endings

3/23/2010 – In rook endings tiny subtleties are often what decides between victory and a draw. This position from the game Heinig-Prusikin from the German Championship is a good example of this. Should White, to move, immediately go for a clearing up of the situation with 50.h4 gxh4 51.Rxh4 or does he have a better continuation? What do you think? As usual on ChessBase Magazine Online, you will find analysis by our endgames expert Karsten Müller and in addition there is a reader's comment on the previous week's endgame Lubbe-Huschenbeth.

Appendix to Lubbe - Huschenbeth

Markus Lammers has pointed out that in a variation in the ending Lubbe - Huschenbeth Black can also play for zugzwang. In the position below he can try 60...Bc5 (60...Bd2 was indicated by Karsten Müller), after which White needs very precise play to hold the draw.
