  An Englishman: Good Afternoon: ...drawn. Except, of course, for the games where the inferior side blunders and loses.
Apr-02-17  Jack Kerouac: <englishman> It's always afternoon somewhere..

  An Englishman: Good Evening: Unless it's evening, <Jack Kerouac>. Of course, on my planet the average day lasts 45.2 Earth minutes...

  Richard Taylor: I just blundered...onto this live game. It's naturally the inverse of England here so it is with daylight saving just changed 1 hour about 10.30 it is morning here. It must be evening in England. About 9 pm but maybe it is just the end of the afternoon in St. Louis.

Superficially it is about = but Black might be able to win.

Apr-02-17  Jack Kerouac: Cosmic.
But with Caruana,I think he can find a win. Maybe not.
Apr-02-17  BOSTER: f3 is good, or mistake?
Apr-02-17  BOSTER: If they knew the theory, they'd shake hands and go to drink bear.
Apr-02-17  Jack Kerouac: Black to make 'Spatial inroads' with C5?
Apr-02-17  Jack Kerouac: 'Spatial' indeed.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Richard Taylor: But the theory doesn't matter in a live game so it is still possible for a win or a loss as well as a draw. Caruana is probably affected by the time situation and Onischuk knows that.

  whiteshark: Caruana is playing on increments ..

  Richard Taylor: Tarrasch showed how to win with a pawn up in a real game. But I find it hard in such open positions. But Black has a chance to win, or lose on time. (Or vica versa but I think Black is in the best position for a win here as the White rook is getting pushed to the wrong place for best defence. But then I suppose there is a defence.)
Apr-02-17  Jack Kerouac: Playing for a misstep now.
Apr-02-17  Jack Kerouac: Misstep time at last?
Apr-02-17  Jack Kerouac: Useless King. Useless pawn. Strong King, rook, and passed pawn.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Richard Taylor: It is drawn for sure.
Apr-02-17  JimNorCal: "Useless King. Useless pawn. Strong King, rook, and passed pawn."

Yet. Draw.

  Domdaniel: One of the strangest six-piece endings I've seen.
Apr-02-17  Jack Kerouac: Useless pays off.
Premium Chessgames Member Thanks to everybody for participating in today's live broadcast. Remember that tomorrow is a rest day; we'll continue the US Championship coverage on Tuesday, April 4. Hope to see you then!
Apr-02-17  chessdgc2: I hope White has a strong's gonna get stressful :)
Apr-02-17  Marmot PFL: Onischuk is tough but I believe Caruana missed a few chances.
Apr-02-17  Conrad93: 35. h5!? is an interesting idea. One trap being 35...f5 36. hxg6 fxe4 37. gxh7 Rc8 38. Rxc3 Rh8 39. Rc7+ followed by g5, or 35. h5 f5 36. gxf5 gxf5 37. Bxf5 Rxd5 38. Bxh7 with some chances for White with the passed f pawn.
