Kibitzer's Corner
Oct-02-04  AdrianP: 32 ...a5! wins. 32 ...c5?? throws away the win.
Nov-23-06  aragorn69: <AdrianP: 32 ...a5! wins. 32 ...c5?? throws away the win.> Is that a fact? Could you give some variation/explication?
Feb-10-07  Articcircle: Yes 32....a5! wins (the outside pawn)..for example. 33.Kd3 a4 34.Kc3 c5 35.g4 Ke7 36.Kd3 Kd6 37.Kc3 Kd5 38.a3 Ke6 39.Kd3 Kd6 40.Kc3 Kd5 41.Kd3 b4 42.axb4 cxb4 43.Kc2 Kc4 44.Kb2 a3+ 45.Ka2 Kc3 and Black wins.....Or 36.h5 Kf6 then Kg5-f4 and e5-e4...... and if 36.g5 b4+ 37.Kd3 g6 38.Kc4 Ke6 39.Kd3 b3...and Black wins.
Jun-03-07  micartouse: Another example of the outside passed pawn being critical in a pawn ending. In the game continuation, White can play f4 and Kxf4 and White's pawn structure is repaired. If the White King were forced to babysit on the Q-side, Black would have time to take advantage of the weak White pawns.
Mar-16-08  Knight13: 32...c5 is too exposing. 32...a5, as you all have said, gets Black ahead in race of shooting pawns down the queen side.
Nov-09-13  Owl: Pawn ending cost Alexander Alekhine his title for two years... how ironic?

If he won this pawn ending he could retained his title.

Nov-10-13  aliejin: A match is not won or lost in one move ... all the moves, being right or wrong, gravitate in the final result.
