[40.Rgg4 Rd8 41.Be2 Rd7 42.Bf3 Rd3 43.Rg3 Re7 44.Rf5 seems like equal.]

40...Rac8 41.Kh3 Rxg3+ 42.Rxg3 Rc3 43.Rxc3
[43.Qg5 d4 44.Kh2 Kg7 45.Be2 Rxg3 46.Qxg3 Qe5 black has some chances of winning due to the strong d pawn being supported by the active knight.]

[51.Rf3 We looked at this position together with the second of IM David Pruess and we concluded that it was not possible for black to penetrate with his king.]
