  Mateo: It could be the first time 4...b6 was played. But later they prefered 5...Bf8, rather than 5...g6.
Nov-06-18  rbelous: Wouldn't 34. Rc7+ Ke8 be much better? Following up with e.g. Ka3 and Rc7-b7-b4

Black will generate play with Rc6 after white's Rb7.

If Kxa4, then Rc2, hitting white's b and f pawns.

Jun-09-20  JimNorCal: Yes, it's white's choice whether to go for a win. Black can't save the b-pawn, he can only hope his counterattack on the kingside will balance the situation.

I guess Sir GAT was happy to get a draw.
