2013-11-21 17:48:05nune1586Not exactly a "tactical" problem, though Rd1 is positionally very good for white. 
2013-11-21 21:42:06chessisajedrez1758@nune - I thought Rd7 forces the fall of b6 but it doesn't. After Kf8, white advances his f pawn, breaks the pawn formation and uses the R+B to attack there. Got the "solution" right, wrong about b6(?!). IMO "no punchline". 
2013-11-22 22:54:49grom431861@chessisajedrez and @nune. Looking at this on chessboard is quite instructive. The GM playing Black chose ...Rd7, obviously, preserving draw. But why does Rc8? lose? Rd1-d7, yes. b6-pawn unimportant. It's the h-pawn we want (eventually).
