  An Englishman: Good Evening: If 50...Rh8; 51.Kf6,Rh7; 52.g5 with Zugzwang. Excellently played endgame for White after 34...Rg5. I don't know if Black could have salvaged a draw.

  HeMateMe: nice zugzwang indeed. The benefits of building a pawn prison on the queen side. I don't think black should have traded queens with this pawn structure.
Jun-13-16  Keshav Murali: Is 3...Nf6 actually better than playing 3...e5 against the centre variation?
Jun-14-16  Toribio3: Jakovenko is an endgame expert!
Jun-15-16  patzer2: In addition to the zugzwang pointed out by <An Englishman>, Black also loses the final position by trading pawn captures with White via 50... Rg7+ 51. Kf6 Rxg4 52. Kxf7 Rxd4 53. Kxe6 (#13, Deep Fritz 15).
