  Straclonoor: Ending remind me Capablanca vs Tarrasch, 1914 Pawns on same lines. Structure looks like copy after rook exchanging in final position. Early in game black definitely could won.

Oct-09-19  SymphonicKnight: Mason's opening is slightly passive, being a reverse Slav, but nevertheless quite as potential. Opening with d4 implies targeting h7, hoping for a K-side castling, rather than e4, going to prematurely attack f7, is more logical. Englisch should have, according to Stockfish, immediately contested 8.Ne5 by 8...Nd7!, still only valued as 0.3 better, and =0.00, but then again at 10...Nd7! The obvious move then that Mason missed first, was 11.Ng6!

14.Qg4! would have won the pawn.

Stockfish considers 38...Kf7! And 39...Rf6 as holding the draw, but after 38...Rb6, 39.R1e4! was probably sufficient to win still.

Stockfish explains the final mistakes resulting in a draw, rather than a win for Englisch.
