  PawnSac: < Jack Kerouac: A8 is basically suggesting: Draw? >

yea Jack, that's basically it. Neither side has an entry point unless black chances Kf5 letting the white rook in at g7. Thereafter black counters white's attempt to create and march the passer with capture of the f pawns and bring the rook down the E file with back rank checks and try to build a mating net, but that's far off and apparently Nis doesn't want to risk what he cant see clearly so far ahead. at least thats my take on it

  PawnSac: so Vlad makes time control to give it one more deep think, but the only pressing idea that comes to mind is 41. Re5 Rb8 42. Ke3 Rc8 43. f5 Rc7 44. Kf4 Re7 45. Rxe7 Kxe7 46. Ke5 f6+ 47. Kf4 with a dead draw

  OhioChessFan: Think a while now that time control has been reached, then shake hands after White's 41st move.

  PawnSac: yes Jack.. if Kxf5 Re7.. so black just has to lift the rook with Rc7, then Re5 and we're back to the other idea again

  OhioChessFan: Black just shuffles the Rook on the 8th rank. Draw now.

  PawnSac: well , on second thought Rb8 is possible since after Kxf5 Re7 Kf6 guards f7 and also keeps the white rook off e8 but it all makes little difference i think

  Jack Kerouac: I do appreciate the pressing for a possible subtle slip. Fischer and Carlsen come to mind.

yes Carlsen has won quite a few "drawn" games by pressing for even the tiniest advantage. The rest of the top level GMs have started to push a little harder as a result of his example.

  OhioChessFan: This is futile. Black's 20 next moves:

R_8

Jul-14-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  PawnSac: agreed, but the fact he's continuing suggests he's baiting black into lifting the R off the back rank while gaining a little space with the king in hope's someone will call Liviu with news that his house is on fire, when Vlad can refuse the draw! lol

  Jack Kerouac: Well, fresh air walk and check the score later. Maybe some coffee and 1/2 1/2 cream. Pun intended. Later, Chess Community.

  PawnSac: maybe switch to the Giri game? although that looks pretty drawn also. probably all draws today

  Onsey Seyon: what happened? was the game a draw? were there exchanges? At the trading post? At the exchequeters? Stock exchange? Prisoner exchangr? Bubble pop? I cannot know i do not say. Go Blu Samari. Go ducks!
Jul-15-18  Clement Fraud: This line of the QGD - involving the Queen exchange and black's resultant pawn decimation - is a favorite variation of Nigel Short (when playing black): Following one of his games with Kasparov (in the 1993 world championship) Nigel mentioned that he'd never lost a game with this particular line of the Queen's Gambit Declined; and in spite of his ruined kingside pawns, black does appear to get a very comfortable position. With this in mind it does appear that 6.Qc2 is white's best choice.
