  alexmagnus: Draw agreed, but the final position is winning. Obviously white didn't dare to play for win against a 447 points higher rated opponent after having a much worse position just a couple of moves ago.
Jun-05-09  WhiteRook48: and it's obviously winning

It's not really 'bad', maybe just not as good as <11...Re8> (Rybka 3 comparison):

Apr-01-11  WhiteRook48: can someone demonstrate how white would execute a win here?
Premium Chessgames Member
  FSR: <WhiteRook48> White has a serious advantage (Houdini 3 says +0.64 after 32...Kf8), but no forced win. Given the huge rating disparity between the players, it was reasonable for White to agree to a draw.
