Dec-03-17  joddon: white does not win this dumbest end game I ever seen.....if black thinks hes under a pin from the bishop after the king takes the rook...b-g4 can be blocked with f7f5....sometimes people don't see moves in games and they think they've won...happens a lot with Magnus Carlsen games too, where he sometimes just seems so happy in the games that opponents don't give time to see if there are more alternatives!!!!!!!!!!! even if the pawn takes the rook the game should still end in a draw.

If black played against <joddon>, that may be true. Unfortunately he's facing Motylev, who is nearly as happy as Carlsen.
