Notes on chess in Chicago.
Mariano also drew GM Larry Kaufman in rnd 3
Probably 52...Rxd4 53.Rxh4 e5 1/2-1/2(although White could play 54.fxe5+ Kxe5 55.R moves, then try to win Black's last pawn, then try to win R+B v. R).In a rare breach of protocol, White said to Acosta after queens were traded, "How on earth can you hope to draw this ending?" Unflustered, Acosta replied, "Elementary, my dear Watson."
