  pdxjjb: The game was pretty even for 36 moves. And after 37. Ra7+, it's still even if Mamedov plays Kf6. You can criticize engines all you like, but after Kh6 the engine says Mamedov is lost. And Ding Liren saw it the same way, because the engine predicts the rest of Ding Liren's moves.

  al wazir: Black just gave it away in the ending. All he needed to do was keep the ♖s connected by playing 30...Kf8/Kg8/Kh8 or even 30...Kh6. If white tries to bring his second ♖ forward to attack, black can force a swap of the ♖s.
May-02-18  qqdos: <pdx> So 37.Kh6?? was a pretty horrendous mistake, given that white had only to choose between 2 squares for his King.
