Jul-12-18  Straclonoor: One more won game that ends the draw from Mason's 'efforts' 50....b4? what's a pawns sacrifices start?
After 50....cxd3 51.cxd3 Qa2! white lose pawn 'a6' (and 'b2' as well) and lost.
Jul-13-18  Straclonoor: <50....b4? what's a pawns sacrifices start? > Stockfisch totally disagree with me-:)
50...b4 after that
