Apr-02-17  wtpy: nice and seemingly accurate endgame play by Akopian. Interested to see what the engines will make of it.
Apr-03-17  Nerwal: <Interested to see what the engines will make of it.> Shreds as usual. White botched this endgame badly after move 45 (the ♙f6 would have won by itself, there was no need to take care of anything else) and Black missed a draw at the end.

  HeMateMe: I like the way white transferred his advantage to the kingside, but doesn't he win quicker with 46.K-g6, forcing both black's king and rook into defensive positions?
Apr-06-17  protonchess: Black can answer 46. Kg6 with 46. .. h2, after which White has to swing to Rook over anyway.
