Post-game analysis with the benefit of a tablebase was instructive, and rather humbling; my opponent and I traded the win and draw back and forth several times, often unwittingly.
I post my findings here, and invite the community to comment:. I can't claim to have seen the way through the whole game, but was fortunate to come out on top.

Quite illustrative of how difficult this endgame can be! Thank you for posting the game and analysis! Ha, yep, after that continuation the tablebase says Black is winning. I think Kg3 Kf1 is better, though.

You need to know the concept of king on short side rook on long side as explained in the rook videos of Daniel Rensch. Spiffe, you may be right, but I can't agree that a rook and 2 pawns is a draw against a rook, even if they are unconnected. After Rf5, Ra5 seems to secure everything.
The king will come to g4, and the pawns advance, right?

In that scenario Jack, I would play Kf3, after which the draw looks pretty obvious; I don't see any way for White to extricate his king from the h-file and hang on to the f-pawn at the same time. Smyslov has some very nice endgames in which he held the weaker side of it, and Botvinnik famously made it a key point of preparation going into the matches with him.
Those are indicative of perfect play in the endgame, and can be fascinating to play through -- after the game is over, of course! I see- Please allow me one more try. In your game, after Rg8, why not Ra5 immediately, threatening to trade rooks, therefore forcing the king off the g-file, or the rook off of same.

That would have been more in keeping with the plan I ultimately pursued; as indicated in the comments, I abandoned a different plan based on Kh3 and Play would continue as it did after I've saved three draws on chess. The model game for the drawing side's play is Gligoric-Smyslov, In case anyone thinks it's not a draw, here's the tablebase result for the position where your analysis started.

May 6, 1. To create a series or add a work to it, go to a "work" page. The "Common Knowledge" section now includes a "Series" field. Enter the name of the series to add the book to it. Works can belong to more than one series. In some cases, as with Chronicles of Narnia , disagreements about order necessitate the creation of more than one series. Tip: If the series has an order, add a number or other descriptor in parenthesis after the series title eg.
By default, it sorts by the number, or alphabetically if there is no number. If you want to force a particular order, use the character to divide the number and the descriptor.
So, " 0 prequel " sorts by 0 under the label "prequel. Series was designed to cover groups of books generally understood as such see Wikipedia: Book series. Like many concepts in the book world, "series" is a somewhat fluid and contested notion. A good rule of thumb is that series have a conventional name and are intentional creations , on the part of the author or publisher.
