Jul-13-17  Stanley Yee: The end may be a bit premature. 30. Re2 fxe4 31. Rxd2 exd3 32. Bxd3 Rb6 33. Be2 Bd5 34. b4 axb4 35. axb4 cxb4 36. c4 Bc6 and black is a pawn up. Or did I miss something? This is very complicated. For example the threat of Rd8+ with double attack on black bishop and black king. And trap of 34. c4? Bxf3 35. Bxf3 Rxb3+ with double attack on white king and white bishop on f3. Did Grischuk see all this? Nice image cormier Isa 9:6.
Jul-14-17  Nerwal: Both players seemed to think the final position was roughly equal. In the different possible lines Black has some problems with either the parked ♗a8 or the weak pawns at a5 and c5. Engines do share the same point of view, even when Black is optically a clear pawn up.

well, I don't know what they "seemed to think".
