  AylerKupp: I sure have to work on my endgame also. I would have thought that the exchange of rooks would be advantageous for Black given his pawn advantage and I would have jumped at the chance to do so. Howell first offers the exchange of rooks with 24.Re1 and Yue refuses. Howell offers the exchange of rooks again with 40.Re1 and Yue refuses again. Yet, per Houdini 1.5a, that was the correct thing to do both times. And there's no arguing with the result.
Jan-10-12  Ulhumbrus: 7 Bc4 loses the right to castle after 7..Qe4+ 8 Kf1. 16 d5 loses a pawn. It is possible that Howell had planned to arrive at different positions which would neither have lost him the right to castle nor have lost a pawn.

  ajk68: Does 51. Kxd4 achieve a draw?
Jan-11-12  Albertan: Ajk68 no, 51.Kd4 does not achieve a draw:

After 51. Kxd4 a possible continuation good for black is: 51...Rxa2 52. Kc5 a5 53. Kb5 Kf6 54. Rc4 Rxg2 55. Rc6+ Kf5 56. Kxa5 Rg3 57. Rc5+ Kg6 58. Rc6+ Kh5 59. Kxb4 Rxh3
