  patzer2: Perhaps Black should have considered 17...Bxf3!?, when White also has pawn weaknesses to take care of in the endgame.
Premium Chessgames Member
  patzer2: Apparently Black over estimated his chances in the King and Pawn ending with 30...Re8?! . I would think safer for Black was 30...Rg8 or 30...Rf8 .

  patzer2: Winning the endgame even quicker for White was 38. Kg5! Ke5 39. f3 gxf3 40. gxf3 .

  Landman: 26... Rxe4 is quite strong. I'm guessing the game score is incorrect somewhere.
Premium Chessgames Member
  patzer2: <Landman> Good catch! I suspect 25. Ne4 Be7 26. Qxd7+ Kxd7 is correct.
Premium Chessgames Member
  Landman: That must be it. 25.Ne4 Qxf5? 26.Nxd6+

  Penguincw: If black takes the f3 pawn, then white will get the f5 pawn, win both of black's pawns, and black will only get one white pawn. The spare one will lead to victory.

For instance, this may not be the best example, but it's just an example: 43...♔xf3 44.♔xf5 ♔e3 45.♔e5 ♔d3 46.♔d6 ♔c3 47.♔xc6 ♔b3 (47...♔c4 48.♔b6 ♔b3 49.♔xb6 ♔xa3 and the position is similar, just # of moves, see diagram 2) 48.♔xb5 ♔xa3 49.♔a5 ♔b3 50.b5 ♔c4 51.b6 ♔c5 52.b7 ♔c6 53.c8=♕ (see diagram 1) 1-0 and white to mate soon.
