Mar-25-11  Shams: Why not 56.Re3<?> The pawn ending is a trivial draw.
Mar-25-11  woodchopper: 56.Re3??,56...Rb3 0-1
Mar-25-11  Shams: <woodchopper> 57.Ke2 doesn't save white?
Mar-25-11  woodchopper: I guess it doesn't ! 57.Ke2,Kg4 58.Kf2,Rxe3 59.Kxe3,Kxg3 0-1

  offramp: Karpov suggested that 33...Kf/d7 would keep "the position firmly under Black control." He gives 33...h5 no less than two thumbs down.
