This is one of the must-know Rook and Pawn endgame. This is called the Lucena Position.
White to move. What is the plan?
7.Rg5 White stops the rook
It is important to note that the hard work is done at this point- white wins with every single move except the trivial Rh3 (draws) and Rf1 (loses). Equally efficient here would be 1.Rf4 followed by 2.Re4+.
Yancey Ward 1. Re3+ (cutting Black King off) Kd7, 2. Re4! (ready for the Lucena Bridge) Rf2, 3. Kh7 Rh2+, 4. Kg6 Rg2+, 5. Kf6 Rf3+, 6. Kg5! Rg2+, 7. Rg4 and White wins
This is a must know pattern in K & P endgame
One of the most difficult things in chess is to be able to assess positions accurately!
