Sep-02-09  kooley782: Nice variation. I think that would work in that situation, as Black seems too pinned down to use his material advantage in any way.

39.Kh4!! was absolutely brilliant-now Black can't attack the king, it is completely safe behind the pawns.

Mar-26-15  A.T PhoneHome: How would this game continue? Will White just pick up Black's kingside pawns with his Rook, assisted by Bishop and King or are they all goners? I am no endgame specialist! :P
