  SteinitzLives: Whites' extra hour of time to use to avoid blunders or doubtful moves may make the difference. If there is a win for black, Chuky has far less time to find it, but he is one of the best players when it comes to playing following a plan.

  watwinc: Is there really any prospect of slow progress for black, or is he just torturing everybody?
Nov-17-11  Marmot PFL: Looks like draw with knights on. Black can advance the pawn to e4 with preparation, but then protecting results in knight checks to his king. Can't fins any threats that would compel a knight trade.

  SteinitzLives: black is not breaking through, don't see any maneuvers to bring it about.

  Domdaniel: <boz> My experience with increments is from the other side. A few months ago, I could only draw two winnable endings, each with my opponents down to 30' increment time. Both easy wins under sudden death time controls, but I wasn't able to win against increments despite having a few extra minutes.

FIDE and many national federations now insist on them for rated events. I think it's a good idea.

  OhioChessFan: <watwinc> Chucky holds all the cards. Any Pawn moves and there's another 50 moces Nepo has to make accurately.

  watwinc: If white exchanges off the k-side pawns, he can sac the knight for the other pawn ...

Agree. I like to see games played to their logical conclusion. The worst is Armageddon.

Nov-17-11  Ulhumbrus: 66...Kd5 makes progress with the Black King. Then the N may go to e6, d4 and f5.

  SteinitzLives: This site is way too far behind, draw has been agreed, official.
Nov-17-11  haydn20: In the Russian video Nepo has walked away from the table with apparent unconcern while Chuky is "milking a stone cow."

  Gypsy: I do not have to compute this thoroughly, but it looks like a good bet that Black has a forced win.

(1) Triangulate with K to get the tempos right.
(2) Penetrate with K to d4/d3 region.
(3) Push the e-pawn till trade of knights is forced.
(4) Attack the g3 from the side.
(5) ...

Nov-17-11  boz: So that's it, a draw. For those who want more, there's an interesting position on the board in Koneru-Hou. Almost certainly a decision in that game.

  Domdaniel: Funny how the day's results -- draw, draw, draw -- misses so much of the tension and drama.

  OhioChessFan: <Talisman: <Ohio> what happened to your post? i liked it!...one more cause i got to go...black rook going somewhere!>

Oh, I let another post get in between and decided I should delete it and copy/paste your post so people knew what it meant. And by that point, I forgot.

For the sake of historical accuracy, let me try to recreate it:
