Feb-17-22  Ulhumbrus: 17 c3 prods the knight
Feb-17-22  Ulhumbrus: After 19 Bf4 the N on e5 is pinned. This suggests 19...f6.

  PawnSac: didn't play c3 maybe so the Nb3 would not be hanging after a possible Rxe1 Qxe1 ?

  OhioChessFan: 29. Nf4 seems right. Pretty drawish position though.

  Gypsy: <36. b4...> Interesting rook endgame: White playing for the win, but Black should hold.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Gypsy: <36...Rd4> and they can shake hands to a draw
Feb-17-22  Ulhumbrus: Black has a rook on his seventh rank and it remains to be seen whether this is worth a pawn.
Feb-17-22  Ulhumbrus: On 39 Rc5 what is Black going to do?

  Gypsy: Aronian blew it: <59...f2??> lost the game.

  Gypsy: <...Aronian blew it: <59...f2??> lost the game.> In the final position, there is too many columns between Black king and white c-pawn.
Feb-18-22  Jimmy720: Great endgame play

  saffuna: Reassuring to know the best players in the world can mess up rook endings, too.
