Gorenje 2007 (Round 5)

Chessdom is covering the Valjevo Chess Event:

Three players leading after the fantastic round with four decided
Atalik scores first win ever against Nikolic. Roiz tactically outplayed
Stojanovic and Karpov forced Iodrachescu to give up after the threats on the
back-rank. Damljanovic played perfect Rook endgame to beat Pavasovic.

Damljanovic B. (2585) - Pavasovic D. (2567)

This is the start of this very interesting Rook endgame.
White certainly has the best possibilities, but it is not easy to win the game.
