    I feel like watching that King walk in the endgame and the perfect method of fixing weaknesses was definitely worth a few rating points in strength.

    When you say that choosing 15. exd4 over 15. Rxd4 is the sign of a strong player over one which is not I must disagree. I feel 15. exd4 is a really logical and easy move to play permanently fixing the c6 weakness with strong control over c5 square and making sure Black's light squared Bishop never lives actively.

    Oddly enough some of the computers actually favor 15. Rxd4 for some reason. But I surely side with you and Hikaru on this one  :)

    BTW, chess.com staff, I noticed that this game isn't in the Game Explorer. I don't know how often you update your database, but I would love to see the games from the US Championship in there.
