  HeMateMe: this should probably be a draw among GMs, but white's Rook got moved to a bad square.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: And you probably do not want to go into an inferior Rook ending vs. Aronian when he has rounded into form. Did you notice how the Rd4 could never attack the vulnerable pawn on a5? The e-pawn just happens to have happened upon the critical e6 square; the sort of "good luck" that just happens to happen with just the greatest players.
Apr-20-17  Fanques Fair: 39-Ra7 should give much better chances for White.
Apr-20-17  Conrad93: White had less than a minute to make 10 moves before making time control.

People tend to forget this. Aronian only played on because of his large time advantage (an hour vs. 45 seconds).
