  Gypsy: <49...e5> is a surrender. But after Ke5 and Bh8-f6-e7, Black is hogtied.

I agree about e5. But what is wrong with shuffling the R from d7 to b7. If the white rook goes to b8, then a6 and put the B on the a6 diagonal, and the rook can shuffle from d7 to a7. The d pawn can get to the seventh, but I don't see how it gets home. a6 keeps the king out, and the B and R can't cover all three Rook shuffles to a7, b7, and c7.

  Gypsy: <OhioChessFan> Say 49...Rb7; then 50.Rc7+ Rxc7 51.dxc7 and 52.c8Q .

The hogtie variation can go like this: 49...Bg2 50.Ke5 Bf3 51.Bf6 Bg2 52.Be7 Bd6 53.a3..., and Black is zugzwang; eg, 53...a6 54.Rf8+ Kg7 55.Ra8...

Thanks. LOL, so obvious once I see it. Instead of actually making the moves, I was just thinking about the planning.

  Gypsy: <OhioChessFan> That's quite allright. The plan was good. It just had a tactical weakness.
