At first glance, 41...Ke6 42. a3 a6 43. a4 a5 44. b3 wins the opposition and the game. What did you see?

  beatgiant: On second glance, it's not so simple. C

Continuing my line, 41...Ke6 42. a3 a6 43. a4 a5 44. b3 Kd6 45. Kf5 Kd7 46. Ke5 Ke7 47. Kd5 Kd7.

Although White's king outflanks Black's and advances a row forward, Black regains the opposition and stops further advance.

So you could be right - maybe 41...Ke6 draws.

Jul-19-07  Bob726: 46.a5? blew the draw for black. b4! followed by Ka5 draws, as if White plays Kxc5 its stalemate.
