Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-14-19  BOSTER: Carlsen can win.
Jan-14-19  Ulhumbrus: Three famous rook and pawn wins are the games Duras vs Capablanca, 1913 Capablanca vs Yates, 1930 and Gligoric vs Euwe, 1953
Jan-14-19  Ulhumbrus: To attempt an answer to the question of whether Black can win after 47..Kg6 consider the following question: What is Black going to do if White does nothing ? Bring his king to g4, let us say. Now suppose that White plays f3 to prevent that. Then the Black king may go to f4 and perhaps play ...f5 and ...e4. Then with the white king on the second rank ...Ra2 pins the e pawn and threatens ..e3. Now can White hinder any of this? One way to hinder it is for the white rook to attack the f6 pawn and tie the black king to its defence, say, by 48 Rb6.

  Ron: I'm looking at the Stockfish analysis provided here and it looks like that the rooks and kings are just moving around with no progress

So best play on both sides is draw. But we are dealing with humans here. An inaccuracy by White could be enough for Carlsen to win.

  offramp: I think that in the future we will get many more 100+ move games.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Penguincw: 100+ move games can be exciting. Much better to watch than a 15 move draw.

  lost in space: last papen move was 90. fxe4, so it will last until move 140. Good night.

  offramp: A GM should be able to draw this, but it is worth playing on.
Premium Chessgames Member
  AylerKupp: FWIW this has been a theoretical draw since 90...Rxe4 per the Lomonosov tablebases. And after 126...Kd4 it's still a theoretical draw. Of course, White could always make a mistake, but that's unlikely in such a simplified position.
Jan-14-19  Ulhumbrus: Congratulations to Vidit. He has sat an endgame examination given by one of the toughest examiners in the world, Magnus Carlsen, and he has passed.

  Check It Out: Professor Magnus gives passing mark on another student's endgame exam.
Jan-15-19  Howard: There was also a case where Vaganian won this ending---took place in the first round of the 1979 Rio interzonal.

  Penguincw: Here's to the first game in the database in 2019, over 100 moves.
Jan-16-19  ex0duz: Nice hold to vidit!

Indias handsome young hope! I like him and hari, both smart handsome strong Indian players. Where is hari in this tourney? Why did they pick vidit instead, he's been playing weaker than hari I think
