Hi Andrew, it's nice to see some comments from the participants.  What's the
atmosphere in the hall?  Much going on?

Looks like your speculative f5 didn't work out, and Noonianchess played very
well to get to a won position.  Then, it appeared like Noonian blundered to
allow the draw.  Here's the position:

[D]8/3r1pk1/3P1pp1/R7/ppq5/4R1QP/1r4PK/8 b - - 0 42

Noonian played Qc2.  Looks like Qc6 wins in short order.
