  egilarne: There seems to be a draw for Bareev if he had played: 68.h6 Kg6 69.Ra7 c4 70.h7 Kxh7 71.Rxf7+ and the rest should be easy for him. 68-Kg6 is "best", as 68-c4 is met by 69.Rg5! also drawing after 69-Rc8
Aug-25-08  Knight to f6: <egilarne> The line you pointed out is indeed a draw. However, 69. c4? is a mistake, as shown by Fritz 8. Instead, Black should play 69. ...Rc8!. After 70. h7! Kg7 71. Ke3 c4 72. Kd2 Rh8 73. Rc7 Rxh7 74. Rxc4 Kg6 Black retains a small advantage which could make drawing the game harder for Bareev.
Aug-27-08  Alphastar: <Knight to f6> No, black does not retain an advantage. That endgame is dead drawn. At the end of that line, black cannot prevent the white king from stepping in front of the black pawn, reaching an elementary endgame draw.

In endgames like these, there is no such thing as "black is slightly better" or "white is better". It is either "white wins", "drawn" or "black wins". In this case drawn.
