Jan-16-15  poorthylacine: Well known for being a "draw" player, English however puts in this game a terrible pressure on Rosenthal, who must fight very hard to avoid collapsing; and nethertheless English had at least two good opportunities to win the game:

1: 50.f5+!! Ke5 ( if 50...gxf5? 51.exf5 Kxf5 52.Ne7+!) 51.Ne7 Kxe4 52. Nxc8

2: 51. f5+ gxf5 52.exf5+ Kf7 53.Nxb6!...

So Rosenthal could be happy to avoid the defeat, but this long and difficult defensive fight was certainly very tiring for him...
