  tamar: Tarrasch does not comment on 42...Ne6, but as it leads to the loss of the f pawn, perhaps Showalter should have been looking for a positional draw not moving it.

Wouldn't 42...Rxh4 have drawn? If 43 Rd2 Rh8 44 d7 Rd8

I don't see a plan for White against the solid pawns.

  keypusher: <tamar> It's funny, I showed the game briefly to Stockfish -- after 42....Rxh4 it gives an evaluation of -1.4 or so. Eventually White has to give the exchange back and try to hold a bad rook ending.
