  woldsmandriffield: 11..Bg5! was an alert move. After 12 Nf3 Fine must have been tempted by 12..Qxg2 but his choice of 12..Qf6 was also dynamic. It is difficult to pinpoint where White went wrong in the ending. 39 Rf6 was a bit of a misadventure losing time. 45 g5! is an improvement for White, with the idea of going f4-f5 and creating a passed pawn after White captures Rxf7 and Rxh7. This counterplay appears sufficient to hold.

Fine's 46..Rc2 looked good but allowed 47 g5 with the same idea. Instead 46..h6! snuffing out g5 is stronger.

In the final phase, 61..Kc3 was decisive.

A hard fought encounter in a keenly contested match.
