This should be the last time

As promised, here is my game from round 9. The key issue is on move 48, whether I have enough time to run my king to h6 before my queenside pawns disappear. The conventional view is that I did have time, and therefore missed a win, but I still think Black has enough annoying tricks to make it a risky venture. In the end I took the 'safer' path, missed a tactic but still scrambled the draw. Comments and suggestions welcome!

What a fight...

I sense that I would have removed all the rooks at once.

Anyway I hope that you have enjoyed your stay at the Olympics.

Best Wishes
