Black found an interesting way to force a draw here with <69...Rxd4+>. After 70.Kxd4 Kxe6!, White cannot roust Black's king out of the h8 corner.

Whether Black should have been playing for the draw is another question, but this was one of the last games in the last round of an exhausting 21-round team tournament, and neither team was going anywhere. I don't blame him. Besides, it's certainly the prettiest finish.
