  wordfunph: as expected 1/2.
Apr-24-19  savagerules: Obviously both wanted a breather, but games like this are still irritating to see. I hope one day there will be a tiebreak way to have all games end decisively one way or another so this type of patty cake chess won't be played as much.

  HeMateMe: well, it WAS kind of touch football...
Apr-25-19  Ulhumbrus: If 29 Bd5 allows Black to dissolve the queen side by 29...Nb5 this suggests eg 29 Be3 but on 29...c4 the N heads for b5 all the same and on 29 Ba6 c4 30 f3 Bf6 31 Bc5 Nf5 32 g4 Nh4 33 Bd4 Bxd4+ 34 cxd4 Nxf3+ 35 Kf2 Nxc3 wins a pawn.
