Jun-22-04  Brian Watson: Some tricky tactics starting with 24.Nxb5
Premium Chessgames Member
  fredthebear: If instead 25...QxRg7 26.QxQg7+ KxQg7 27.Nc7 threatening the Ra8 and the e6-pawn w/a forking check. The White knight gets a Black rook either way.

In the actual game, White does an artful job with the knight in the ending. The retreating 38...Ke7 is a cautious move to avoid knight checks and clear the sixth rank. In the final position, White has pawn majorities on both wings. The Black rook is tied to the protection of it's a6-pawn, and the f5-pawn in unprotected. The rook dare not round up the connected passers on the kingside else White bursts forth on the queenside.

If Fredthebear were playing White, he'd wait on the draw offer as he is yet to see how Black can switch strategies aggressively. It seems White is not at all excited about the possibilities of Ke5 allowing the Black rook to capture down and come across the second rank to threaten White's queenside pawns from behind. White obviously has to maintain his queenside pawns to have a chance. It's a matter of not wanting to overplay their hand.
