Well, of course you had chances, but in my own experience, I find that I usually have to be at least two Pawns ahead in a Rook and Pawn endgame to win. People like Capablanca, Rubinstein, Lasker, et. al., are, of course, the exceptions to this rule, but we don't exactly play on their level, do we?

By the way, I don't believe, just from a brief perusal of the game, that your opponent used a computer against you. He just played a little bit better than you, that's all (at least, after the 50th move, he did).

P.S. Is the little dog on your homepage a Bichon Frise? He/she looks very much like my dog, who is a Bichon.

I have been trying to determine whether black could have won the position after move 50,being one pawn ahead with K,R,p,p on both sides.
The blunder I lost on -thats another story! But was there a winning chance when still one pawn ahead?

Thanks for the site- and shame on those that use machines during a game!!
