  ajile: Actually I can't find a win for Black in the exchange variation so far despite the high evals.

Sorry. : /

  technical draw: Aronian is in danger of falling into a perpetual after being a rook and knight up.

  ChessHigherCat: Well if they trade everything, g5 and the white king is a thousand light years and the black king is right in the neighborhood

  An Englishman: Good Morning: How can Black break the pin without losing the Knight? Can see this ending in a perpetual very soon, something like 51.Ka3,Kd7; 52.Kb2,Kd6; 53.Kc3,Kd7; 54.Kb2,Kd6.

  tamar: Yifan has demonstrated Hou she is, but not Hou she is going to win this last round game.

  ChessHigherCat: correction: 9,978.046 light years away
Apr-22-17  BOSTER: White has a crasy plan to move king on b5 and bishop on b7.

  An Englishman: Good Afternoon: Aronian has spent a *lot* of time pondering his next move. Can't blame him; his extra pieces have gotten themselves into quite a tangle.

  chessdgc2: 52. Bb7, why not? It's just a game....
Apr-22-17  not not: now white can win g pawn, back seems bad
Apr-22-17  BOSTER: Black is lost.

  ChessHigherCat: Boster: not so crazy, RxN, RxB, Rxc5
Apr-22-17  not not: y c pawn not g pawn - i dont get it

  technical draw: Aronian finally moved after almost 50 minutes, but he made the correct move and should win shortly.
Apr-22-17
Premium Chessgames Member
  ChessHigherCat: not not: maybe he wants to keep the black king busy defending the g pawn while he queens the c pawn
Apr-22-17
Premium Chessgames Member
  ajile: This is a tricky ending. Worth a try for White.
Apr-22-17  not not: i would eat both white pawns and sacrifice my rook for c pawn then

  An Englishman: Good Morning: And good heavens, did not see this coming, not at all. This looks perilous for both GMs. They play almost as if both were promised a million euros each if they did anything *except* draw.

  chessdgc2: Uh, it's not the move itself that's important, it's the "thought" behind it :)

  An Englishman: Good Morning: As much as I would enjoy a Q vs. R & 3 endgame, this looks like a perpetual check to me.
Apr-22-17  GreenLantern: Interesting. Aronian spends almost 50 minutes on move 42 which sf says is a blunder.
