  wordfunph: 41.Rd5!! honorable way to resign.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Spectacularly bizarre game--that pawn structure after 17...a5 looks more like a composed problem than an actual game. Of course Black won't fall for 41...Rxd5; 42.c7, but White could have waited for 41...Rxc6; 42.Rxa5,Rb6 before resigning.
Mar-02-20  TheaN: Surprisingly, 41....Rxd5 is <drawn>. You'd expect Black either to escape the three seventh rank pawns or succumb, but it follows the rather strange sequence 42.c7 Rb5! 43.c8=Q Nd4!:

This rather bizarre position doesn't give White a lot of options: Black threatens Nxe6 and the queen has no real safe haven. Is she leaves the fray entirely, all pawns will fall. Only <44.b8=Q!> works to take out the defender of c5: 44....Rxb8 45.Qc5+ Kxe6 46.Qxd4 Rb5! to protect the fifth rank, Rxd7 47.Qc4+ 1/2 is too simple for White, 47.Qc4+ Rd5 48.Qc6+ Rd6 49.Qc4+ Kxd7:

Here going for a kingside pawn with Qf7+ might be risky although White's not really facing much issues. Slightly safer is 50.Qa2, if 50....Ra8 51.Qf7+ Kc6 52.Qxf5 and now the combined threats of the skewer and losing h7 force 52....a4 53.Qc2+ Kb6 54.Qb2+ Kc7 55.Qc2+ with perpetual.

Mar-02-20  TheaN: To add to that, 41....Rxc6 -+ is obviously not drawn. 42.Rxa5 Nd4 43.Ra8 Rb6 -+ and 42.Rxf5 Rxe6 43.Rxa5 Kxd7 44.Ra8 Rb6 -+ and White's out of play. The only part Black should wary is to not hit e6 with the king with the rook on a5, as then 42.Rxa5 Kxe6? 43.Ra8!= and Black will have to give up rook and knight to eliminate both pawns.
Apr-12-20  RandomVisitor: 31.g4 prevents f5 and keeps the game even.

25...a4 and 17...f4 are both good for black.

8.0-0 is good for white.

Apr-12-20  Cheapo by the Dozen: A few decades ago, resigning after one's own 41st move had an obvious explanation, namely disappointment in the analysis after adjournment.

Is there a replacement for that explanation now?

  OhioChessFan: Clueless on the pun...
Apr-12-20  cyruslaihy: nice game, but would someone care to explain the pun?
Apr-12-20  cyruslaihy: <Ohiochessfan> oooh maybe its meant to be "aid abet and bail"
Apr-12-20  jith1207: Exactly, <Cyruslaihy>.

<To aid and abet means to assist another person in the commission of a crime by words or conduct actively, knowingly, and intentionally. In a criminal offense, a person who aids and abets in a crime, participates in the commission of the crime by performing some overt act or by giving advice or encouragement.>

Ayd Abets in the commission of killing White's army, but falters in the end only for Durarbayli to bail him out in the final sequence by missing a draw.

Complicated game, requires both to play perfect game to not lose. But, it proves very difficult for both Ayd and Vasif. By gaining advantage and losing it few times, Ayd follows a series of aid and abet and bailing (himself) out, with some assist.

Apr-12-20  RandomVisitor: <Cheapo by the Dozen><A few decades ago, resigning after one's own 41st move had an obvious explanation, namely disappointment in the analysis after adjournment. Is there a replacement for that explanation now?>

Something likely happened at that point (which was not documented) prompting Durarbayli to resign.

Maybe Aydin Suleymanli laughed out loud at white's 41st move. Maybe 14 year old Aydin's grandmother at this point told the tournament director that it was Aydin's nap time, and that she didn't think that white had any chances with that last move, and that while Aydin napped she would take over for him beginning with 41...Rxc6 and play to mate. White resigned at this point.

  Breunor: I think white resigned because he is dead lost. Maybe he waited after a time scramble and saw it was hopeless.

Computer analysis of final position:

1) -8.31 (24 ply) 41...Rxc6 42.Rxf5 Rb6 43.Rxa5 Kxe6 44.Ra8 Kxd7 45.Ra2 Rb1+ 46.Kf2 Nd4 47.Kg3 Rxb7 48.Kh3 Ke6 49.Rf2 Rf7 50.Rb2 Rfd7 51.g3 Kf7 52.Kg4 Re8 53.Kh3 Re2 54.Rxe2 Nxe2

  Annie K.: <Cheapo by the Dozen> Even today, most classical events have a time control threshold at move 40, so players often stop and reevaluate after reaching it, if they were short on time before.

The time control for Aeroflot Open (2020) was: 90 minutes for the first 40 moves, followed by 30 more minutes till the end of the game, with a 30-second increment starting from move 1.

Apr-12-20  RandomVisitor: Not that it matters much, but the Russian site for the 2020 aeroflot games

https://ruchess.ru/upload/iblock/e7...

states rules for time control:

Time control:

Tournament A:100 minutes for the first 40 moves, then 50 minutes for the next 20 moves and 15 minutes for the rest of the game with an increment of 30 seconds per move, starting from the first.

Tournament B: 90 minutes for the first 40 moves and 30 minutes for the rest of the game withan increment of 30 seconds per move, starting from the first.

Tournament C: 90 minutes for the whole game with an increment of 30 seconds per move from the first.

The participants must keep the record of moves till the end of the game.

Again, not that it matters, but this was an A level game so A rules should be in effect.

Apr-12-20  jith1207: <Maybe Aydin Suleymanli laughed out loud at white's 41st move.

That was funny.

I too get so intrigued looking at games to see why the player resigned and could the player have waited a couple of moves more until the combination he tried was refuted fully.

But, I think the players are generally aware if their opponent is reading the game at very high level on that day.

Maybe, their opponent goes into longer evaluation, and the losing player feels terrible about the chances, and wants to get it done right there.

Reminds me of a video where Nakamura laments and Languishes in his chair for ten minutes in mate-in-few situation against Carlsen after making a blunder, while Carlsen uncomfortably looks on when he would resign.

Don't be Nakamura. ;)
