  Paint My Dragon: Incredibly tense final round battle. Howell avoided a 3-way playoff by pushing hard for the win, despite having to make moves 45-129 with just the 30 second increment on his clock.

  Troller: Indeed, well fought. Also I am happy to see that Black invites the Bronstein-Larsen variation, although White did not comply.

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Terrific struggle, esp. given the time constraints. However, given the time constraints, it would seem inevitable that both players made at least a few slight errors. Just curious where they might have occurred.

104...Kf5 was an important tactic: 105.Kxe2,Re4+ and 106...Re7. Also, did White really have to surrender the Exchange at move 20?

  Breunor: It looks to me that 99 Ba7 was the critical mistake which ultimately let the e pawn fall.

  GrahamClayton: The last pawn move was 52. e5, so Howell's capture of the pawn with 101...♔xe5 was just in time, otherwise the game would have been drawn under the fifty-move rule.
