  OBIT: After 62...Re1, Lahno could have ended the game quickly with 63. Qd3+, when all Black responses lead to the rook getting forked: (a) 63...Ke5 (or any king move to the c-file) 64. Qc3+ (b) 63...Ke6 64. Qb3+ followed by either ...Qb4+ or ...Qc3+ (c) 63...Ke7 64. h7 Rg1+ 65. Kf5 Rh1 (else the pawn queens) 66. Qe4+. Lahno does still have a won position after 63. h7, but she ends up in a K+Q vs K+R ending, which had to be brutal to play if she was down to a few minutes on her clock.

So, here we have another example of how the elimination of adjournments has changed the game. In the "olden days," Lahno would have sealed her move, studied up on the K+Q vs K+R mate overnight, and won the game. Instead, she has to play the whole K+Q vs K+R finale on the time increment and is unable to work out all the technical problems. Danielian survives for 50 moves and claims a draw by the 50 Move Rule. (OK, actually the draw is by stalemate, but by this point the 50 Move Rule is unavoidable.)
