  GrahamClayton: Ryan was probably happy to draw against a higher rated GM, but he missed a win with 37...♖f3!, due to the threat of 38...♕h4+ 39. ♔g1 ♖xg3. 39. ♕g6 trying to defend the pinned g3-rook loses to 39...♕h4+ 40. ♔g1 ♖f1#.
Sep-27-11  JoeRyan: I was not happy to draw in this position - in fact I was sure I was winning but the problem was I was short on time and no matter how hard I forced myself to find it I just couldn't see it. With the clock ticking down I had to accept the draw. You are quite right about the continuation ...Rf3, I still regret not being able to finish off this game.
