  Chessical: Black very instructively fails to save a pawn endgame.

White's <42.Kf5?> is natural looking but gives away a draw. The winning line is:

<42.a3!> h5 43.b4 (the book method to force a passed pawn) cxb4 44.cxb4 Kg2 45.bxa5

<42...Kxh2!> offers better chances, 43.Kg6 Kg3 44.Kxh6 Kf4 45.Kg6 Ke5 46.Kf7 <c4!> (46...Kd5? 47.Kf6 Kd6 48.c4 Kd7 49.Ke5 Kc6 50.Ke6 Kb6 51.Kd5 wins)

<43...Kxh2> also loses; 44.Kxh5 Kg3 45.Kg5 Kf3 46.Kf6 Ke4 47.Ke6 Kd3 48.Kd5 Kxc3 49.Kxc5 Kb2 50.a4 Kxb3 51.Kb5

If <44...Kg2> d4 45.Kxh4 Kf3 46.b4 cxb4 47.cxb4 axb4 48.axb4 winning
