It is white to move. White`s next move is decisive in bringing about a winning position.  

At  first glance it may seem that black should be able to sacrifice the rook for the white pawn while pushing his own pawn, thereby gaining a draw.

In the game I missed the best continuation and ended up with a draw.

I was not in time trouble, it was just a really bad mistake by me.

Can you see white`s best continuation? I will post the key move in the comments section.

  1. The decisive move is Rook to c5 which cuts the black king of from supporting the f pawn.
