  Shams: Why not 56.Re3<?> The pawn ending is a trivial draw.

  Shams: <woodchopper> 57.Ke2 doesn't save white?
Mar-25-11  woodchopper: I guess it doesn't ! 57.Ke2,Kg4 58.Kf2,Rxe3 59.Kxe3,Kxg3 0-1

  Shams: Well, obviously that line loses, but what I had in mind probably does too-- 57.Ke2 Kh4 58.Rxb3 axb3 59.Kd2 Kxg3 60.a4 f4:

Certainly much more difficult for white to hold this queen ending than the rook ending proved to be. Thanks, choppy.

  offramp: Karpov suggested that 33...Kf/d7 would keep "the position firmly under Black control." He gives 33...h5 no less than two thumbs down.
