Kozak kept pushing a roughly equal position until the passed h-pawn decided in QR-QR play.

Position 1
Both sides have passed pawns but the h-pawn is further advanced and has ideal rook support from behind. What should white do now?

Black tried an interesting defensive novelty but followed it up in accurated to wind up in a passive postion.
All of white’s pieces are more active than their counterparts and the queenside majority comes to nothing in this model ending.
