  HeMateMe: interesting ending. Can the engines find a win for black, when there were three pawns on the board?
Mar-11-16  dumbgai: Nah, the endgame was drawn the entire way. Hou Yifan just needs 1 point in the last 3 games to win the match.

  Gypsy: <39.Ke2 Bf6> Here, the g-pawn was poisoned, I think; e.g., 39...Bxg2(?) 40.Rg1 Bd5 41.Rxg7+... -- and Black's h-pawn also probably falls.
Mar-12-16  Mr. V: IMO this is the best game of the match so far (out of eight played now)
Mar-15-16  spazzky: Did anyone look at 40. Nf5+ ?

King has to go away (likely to f8)

Then Bd2 and then Bb4 are possible, and white looks good to me.

  Gypsy: <spazzky> I think you are right; the <40.Nf5+...> looks quite unpleasant for Black.
