  HeMateMe: I like the endgame work here, how black maneuvered his pawn to c2.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: The entire game puzzled me, right from that strange, strange opening. After 46...Kh5, why didn't White play 47.Rg1, keeping the Black King confined to the h-file and guarding the queening square?

  HeMateMe: maybe black marches his king to h2. white has to stay on the first rank to stop the queen, so the black king can't be imprisoned. Black's king then marches towards his pawn, centralizing.

I think eventually black swings his rook to b1 and white has to give up his Rook for the pawn.

  morfishine: <An Englishman> Looks like that offered the toughest defense, probably an oversight by Harikrishna


Apr-23-17  blackdranzer: 17 Qxe6 ? Why would he play that ?
