Apr-20-09  Dredge Rivers: What? You're not done already, are you?
May-03-09  WhiteRook48: 192 Rg4+
Oct-06-09  WhiteRook48: 192...Kh2 193 Kf2 Rf8+ 194 Bf3 Kh3 195 Rg5
Black can claim a draw by 54-move rule or play 195...Rh8 The former is more foolproof

  wordfunph: shame on Grischuk-Gelfand's 3rd game (14 moves) of Candidates Finals, this game ended in 191 moves and the total playing time was 20 hours!

Czerniak’s 178..Rb6!! was awesome in the context of this game. 178..Rb3+? 179 Kf4! would win for White eg 179..Rb4 180 Rg2+ Kh3 181 Rd2 Ra4 182 Rd6 Kh2 183 Rd1 +-

And 186..Kg1! was pretty good too. For the record, 187..Ra3+ and 188..Ra8 were only moves. Likewise 191..Re8.

Czerniak was was iron man in this ending.
