  wwall: An interesting endgame. After 49.a3, instead of 49...Rf8?, perhaps Black can draw with 49...g3 or 49...Rg8 50.e5 g3.

After 49...Rf8, best for White may be 50.Rg7+, then 51.e5 and 52.Ke4.

50.e5 allows 50...Rf3+ 51.Ke2, now 51...Rb3!, threatening 52...Rxb2 should draw.

After 52.Rg7+, it looks liked 52...Kh4?? is the losing move. Black should have played 52...Kh6, threatening the rook and threatening 53...Rxd4, which should draw.
