  cro777: This should be a draw. Akobian is still keeping winning chances (the bishop pair advantage).
Apr-08-17  chessdgc2: This may call for 50. Kf2, but does White have something better?
Apr-08-17  ChessHigherCat: The only way to prevent it would be Qe1 and then black picks up d4 with impuniity

  Gypsy: 50.Qb6 Kf3 51.Qb2...

50... Qxd4 51.a5...

Apr-08-17  ChessHigherCat: Kf3, it's always good, the universal, all-purpose move
Apr-08-17  geniokov: 50 Qb4 i think is much better.

50.Qb6 Qxd4 51.Qxe6+ ... etc

Apr-08-17  Scarborough shoal: Gata is a tough customer. I underestimated him.

  Gypsy: 50...Qf3+ 51.Kg1 Qd1+ 52.Kg2 Qxa4 53.Qxe6... is a theoretical draw.
Apr-08-17  ChessHigherCat: Fish Stick gives Qf3 as a draw

  technical draw: Onishuk wins!
Apr-08-17  ChessHigherCat: Does =0.00 mean it's a theoretical draw or just that chances are even and anything can happen?

  Gypsy: Can be either.
Apr-08-17  chessdgc2: Perpetual Chex.......;
Apr-08-17  SCUBA diver: Why not 50. ..K-f3, followed by mate. Am I missing something.

  Gypsy: but when it is this crisp, it usually means that the comp sees a forced draw any which way it looks
Apr-08-17  Scarborough shoal: Expect tons of perpetual check if Gata will insist.

  Gypsy: <SCUBA diver: Why not 50. ..K-f3, followed by mate. Am I missing something.> 50...Kf3 51.Qb2... This covers the mate and Black suddenly has a problem how to stop the a-pawn.
