Oct-19-18  Saniyat24: Wonderful combinative play by both players, materials were equal in the end game, but Suba used his King well to eek out a win.

  OhioChessFan: I admit not realizing why White resigned, but after playing the proposed line through, he's totally losing. Black's aggressive King just dominates the position. Not sure at what point White was lost, but I am having a look at 37. b3 now.

  OhioChessFan: I gave up trying, and just turned to Stockfish, but I think 37. b3 holds. Black is put in a sort of zugzwang with the DSB really having a problem with what diagonal to stay on. The outposted Knight is strong and really hampers the Black King's progress.

Anyway, here's SF:
