  An Englishman: Good Evening: Thought White was winning for the longest time--as late as 42...Kf6 he seemed to have a safe extra pawn. Or was it just an optical illusion?
Premium Chessgames Member
  OhioChessFan: White wasted a lot of time exchanging Rooks. Black's King got from g7 to f4 while White did nothing.
Mar-22-19  Ironmanth: Hmmm...was there a solid win for White here; maybe in several places?!...thanks for this one, chessgames. Y'all have a super weekend!

  boringplayer: 45)Kh3 just looks wrong. Black's king gets a free pass to go wipe out White's queenside. Maybe 45)g3.
