    Have actually been trying to play for a win in this rook ending, but can't find anything trappy enough by freestyle standards to justify playing on here.

    The rook ending was (and in human terms still is) quite tricky but I think if black was going to get in trouble it would have been after playing something other than ...Kc6 on move 40. F11 actually initially gives both ...Kc8 and ...Ke8 as 0.00 as well but after I enter in some lines it is not so clear (well down the track) whether both those moves are safe draws. ...Kc6 certainly appears the safest.

    I did find some nice white human wins in this Berlin line, eg one by Topalov, but it seems that Black's exact move order is critical as to whether White can get some kind of lasting edge. Your 14...h4 (novelty?) looks like it was a good move which killed off a lot of my chances to stir anything up.

    Kg4-f4 isn't messy?

    I looked at Ke4 intending Kf5 very thoroughly but everything I looked at led either to draws or to positions where I was at much more risk than he was.
