Chess is hard for all of us

Black to play and draw
Sasikiran (India)- Aronian (Armenia)
World Team Championships 2010

Levon Aronian is one of the top five players in the world, and one of the world's strongest endgame players.  (You may recall that he beat Magnus Carlsen in a dead-drawn rook ending a couple years ago.)  But Aronian misses the draw in this "easy" (which is to say "very hard") rook and pawn vs. rook ending.
