Four passed pawn for a rook ... not winning

Post by xr_a_y » Fri Sep 13, 2019 7:25 pm

Without an engine do you see this is a win for white ?

[d] 4k3/7R/2p1pppp/N3p3/P4n2/7P/1p6/5K2 w - - 0 47

For an engine, is this something only search can handle or there are some eval features to improve ?

Does somebody's engine get a mate ?
