Maybe a nice 'white plays and win' problem?
Sure would like to see some analysis on this one.

  MoonlitKnight: 52...Nd6 runs into 53.Bb8+ for one thing. Other lines just give the piece back, when the rook endgame is easily won.
Sep-28-05  Poisonpawns: "Cramped positions contain the seeds of defeat" Thats all i have to say about this one.51.Nxe5! and look at blacks pieces,amazing.

Could you post your line?

At first glance, 56. Re7+ Nd7 57. f7 Ra8 58. Re8 Kb7 and I don't see how it's better than the actual game line.

  perfidious: An object illustration of why going passive against a strong GM does not usually work so well.
Apr-29-19  carpovius: How about 57...Nd7 58. Re7 Ra8 59. Re8 Rd8?

Solve for white on move 51.

I saw 51.Bxe5 which still allows white to win.
