As I mentioned in my previous post, just because I had .5 out of 5 didn't mean I'd get an easy pairing. In fact I got to play a 2250 who had 4.5 out of 5. It was probably one of my better played games in the tournament, but losing a pawn to a master doesn't usually lead to good things. I missed a big opportunity to get the pawn back. I saw the move, but didn't look deep enough to see that it actually does get the pawn back.
After that there were no more chances, howeverI felt like I put up a decent fight right to the end. It's very instructive in how he won the rook and pawn ending. If nothing else I got to see how to convert since so often it's difficult to win those endings.
Here's the game
This is the final position. It's too bad it's my move. If it's Black's move it's a draw.
Here's a possible continuation if Black is on move. 57... Ke6 58. Ke2 Kf7 59. Kf1 Kf6 60. Kg2 Ke6 61. Kf2 Kf6
Now if Black makes the mistake of 61... Kf5?? 62. Kg3! he would be the one in zugzwang.
The opposition is a powerful thing!
