Jan-26-14  Marmot PFL: On the other board I thought Dominguez-Perez missed something in the rook ending but I guess it was always a draw. With the queens on black was so close to winning that Karjakin gets for holding the draw (after some poor play in the opening. Players seem to experiment more in the last round.)

  luzhin: Add another remarkable example of the adage that all Rook endings are drawn. 13.b3? was a howler, though.

  luzhin: ..and it looks as though it should never have reached a Rook ending: 43...f3! seems a killer, eg: 44.Qb1 Re1+! 45.Qxe1 Qc4+ 46.Kg1 Qg4+ and mate on g2.
Jan-27-14  abuzic: The simple 43...f3 forecs exchange of rooks, to avoid mating threats or material loss:

43...f3 44.Re3

<44.Rb1? Rd2 45.h3 Qd3+ 46.Kg1 Qg6+ 47.Kf1 Qg2+ 48.Ke1 Qxf2# (also 44...Re1+ mates a move later: 45.Qxe1 Qd3+ 46.Qe2 Qxb1+ 47.Qe1 Qd3+ 48.Kg1 Qg6+ 49.K move Qg2#)>;

<44.Qb1? as <luzhin:> posted>;

<44.Rc3 Qg4 45.Qd3+ e4>;

44...Rxe3 45.fxe8 Qc4+ 46.Kf2 e4.
