  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

  Korora: Unless, of course, someone overlooks something, finger-slips, or forgets to say, J'adoube.

  OhioChessFan: 42 moves would suit me fine.
Jul-14-18  Jack Kerouac: I do appreciate the pressing for a possible subtle slip. Fischer and Carlsen come to mind.

or sneezes and accidentally knocks his King over ;>)

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

  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
Jul-14-18  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: the pun is fine. may as well milk it for all its worth
Jul-14-18
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: Please don't steer the conversation to puns.

  OhioChessFan: And that's it. No record for consecutive R_8 moves.

  PawnSac: maybe switch to the Giri game? although that looks pretty drawn also. probably all draws today
Jul-15-18  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.
Dec-26-18  DonChalce: why not 35...Kf5?
Dec-26-18  shivasuri4: <DonChalce: why not 35...Kf5?> It's playable, but the position remains equal after 36. Rg7 Re7 37.Rh7.
Dec-26-18  siggemannen: Kramnik's record against Nisi is interesting, they played 4 times, always in Dortmund, and always to a draw
