  An Englishman: Good Evening: In our Opening of the Day, this endgame sequence after 41.Kf1 is aesthetically highly pleasing. I like how the Black King smothers the Bishop.

  Gilmoy: 51.fxe3 Kg3 52.<any> Kf3 (defends e2) and Black's d-pawn queens (or rooks :) with mate.

Apr-04-12  joupajou: After 38. ..d4. White bishop is trapped in the corner, useless piece now.

I don't like 39.Ke2, because after 39. ..e3+ he practically lost this game.

What about 39.a4?

Apr-04-12  Llawdogg: Thanks Gilmoy, for the finish.

  Penguincw: The puns have been excellent recently.

  gofer: <joupajou> I think <39 f3> leads to a draw. Black has no control over the light squares and so the white LSB and king can easily stop the two central pawns.

  kevin86: A rare win with bishops of opposite colors-with equal pawns-thanks to zugzwang.

Instead of 49. ♗xe4, 49. g4 (worth a try) d2! Δ d1=♕+, 50. ♔e2 ▢ ♔xg2 (winning the White bishop), 51. gxf5 d1=♕+!, 52. ♔xd1 ▢ ♔xf2 Δ e3 - e2 - e1=♕
