    Thanks for the game. Couple of comments (gotta get back to prepping for my trip to Melb). I didn't examine 57. Ra7 at all . I think 59.Kb2!! drew. 59.Kb2!! Qc1+ 60.Ka2 Bxa4 61. Rxa4 e2 61.Bxe2 Qxc2+ 62.Ka1!!

    edit-I forgot to insert the Bxa4 the first time. That is just from memory, but I think it is right now.

    In the game variation, I missed Kc1. Played it too quickly thinking that Raxa4 lead to a 6 man tablebase draw in all variations.

    On move 58, I spent quite a lot of time on

    I had spent time on Rh7, because I missed Kb2. More accurate is that I didnt spend enough time on it and thought Ka2 was sufficent. I will look at Kb2 quite a bit more cause I thought I saw some nasties there.

    Because I missed Kc1, I realised after you played Kc1 that I had to play Kb2 and take my chances. I think it is move 60 that you refer to. It is after the queen check on h1. I think you are correct

    Correction to post. It does appear to be move 59.

    Thoughts about the overall game. The Qxa8 variation sucks. I had to play quite a few moves on laptop which doesnt have tablebases on it, so that was a real handicap and it showed when I was able to get back to proper computer with tablebases.

    I went from what seemed like a pretty even position to a very difficult to defend position. In the end that showed with one 'error'.

    Agreed.

    I thought you were kind of worse from very early on. The positive plan for White would have been to advance the queenside pawns. This is of course hard to do, since you don't want to expose your king. But if it works it would be very effective (e.g. Rook on c1, with the c pawn advancing can be very scary). I don't know if any such plan would have actually worked. After I got my pawns running it seems you can only try and defend. But you have a hell of a lot of fortress options, so it was very hard to find a way in. Bd7 was kind of a mistake, but then I had to take positive action at some point. All in all tough game.
