  patzer2: The losing move according to Stockfish 8 is 36...dxe3? allowing 37. Qd6 +- (+1.89 @ 38 depth.)

Instead, 36...Qh4! 37. Kg2 dxe3 ⩲ (+0.57 @ 40 depth, Stockfish 8) appears to give Black decent drawing chances.

Aug-14-17  The Kings Domain: Good game by Liem. This win, Nakamura's walkout, and Kasparov's commentary on the game were the highlights of a humdrum day.
Aug-15-17  Albanius: 73 ... Kd7
74 Ka7 Kc8
75 b6 Bb7
76 h3 zugzwang
.. B moves (with or w/o 76..h5 77 h4)

Aug-15-17  Mudphudder: The white king walked a marathon in this game. Nice patient win by Liem!

  ajile: Black seems to get a good version of a Black Dutch Stonewall with tempo getting in ..g5. And yet still loses. Bummer.
