Everything here is superb. However, that background noise is crazy annoying

Sorry I'm new to televised chess, is this what actually happened during the match? Daniel sometimes makes it seem like he's playing the moves

At 11:03, h7 instead of Rh7 is also a draw. Black king goes to b7 (to avoid any skewer) and never moves from there. White Rook is stuck on b8 defending the pawn. And when White king comes to protect the pawn, Rook goes to a1 and starts checking the king. The white king has no safe places to hide from the checks and if it comes down to attach the rook, the rook goes to a1 or a5. So h7 is also a draw.

I checked out the endgames with a endgame tablebase. At 8:12 51...Kh4 is in fact a draw. But 51...Rc2+ and 51...Kf4 also draw.At 9:41 you are correct in saying that 57...Re7 is a draw.At 10:10 51...Kf5 is in fact a loosing move, but the only move that wins for white is 52.Rc8!After 52.c6 Rc2+ is a draw. But 52...Ke6 loses and 53.h4 is one of the two winning moves (the other being Rc8). After that Gelfand played it perfectly up to his blunder (61.Rh7??) missing 61.Kg3! as you said.

Alessandro, I'll investigate the 'sliding pieces' option. Thanks for your feedback - DK

White checks with the rook on a7 and wins the enemy rook on the other side of the board - DK
