  profK: Black's 11...b6 is cute and enough to cause an over-the-board ripple.

  HeMateMe: Doesn't white have a draw, until he starts advancing the kingside pawns, letting the black Rook win the h pawn?
Oct-31-12  Atking: May be 12.Bd4 Bb7 (12...Qf4+ 13.Kb1 xc5 14.Be5 Qb4 15.c3 ~ BxNf6 and Qe4) 13.e5 Qxc5 14.Ng5
Oct-31-12  Refused: hum, I wonder why Nepomniachtchi didn't try 44.f4
Unless I missed something big (which is probably the case), 44.f4 looks like a good idea, it's in the very interest of white to knock out as many black pawns as possible.
Oct-31-12  Edeltalent: <Refused> 44.f4 leaves Whites pawns severely weakened (kind of like it happened later in the game). I guess the continuation would be 44... Re1+ 45.Kd2 Nf3+ 46.Kc2 g6 47.g4 h4 and the h-pawn will fall.
Oct-31-12  Refused: Thanks.

I missed that Nf3 doesn't just cover the rook but also gives a check at the same time. Thus I can't capture on h5, as I thought/hoped.

I was aware, of the weakening of the pawn structure, but getting rid of the h-pawn was more important. But again, thanks for pointing out, that it won't work the way I want it.

Oct-31-12  Everett: ..b6 in the same opening, with eventual play vs the white long-castled position.

Nov-02-12  tonsillolith: Why <68...Rg2> instead of immediately <Rh2>? It looks like Black is going for the h pawn anyhow.
Nov-04-12  Edeltalent: <tonsillolith> It was probably played to cut the white king off g4. But I assume 68...Rh2 69.Kf3 Rxh3+ 70.Kg4 Rh1 is also winning, as 71.Rf6 runs into the cute Nh6+! and Nf5. If White waits instead, Black gets the f- for the h-pawn and g5 soon after.
