  beenthere240: Agreed very classy. Can't stop all 3 pawns and can't decline the bishop sac.

  patzer2: The winning move IMO is actually 51...Kc6! which ignores the attack on Black's pawn chain in order to take care of the more important task of escorting the h-file passer.

The final 56...Be4! wins with flash, and though not the only winning move it is perhaps the most logical and practical.

  cade: Lovely finish. The idea of 3 unprotected and individually useless pawns all running to queen while the 2 White pieces can only stop 2 is very nice.

  patzer2: Correction to my last post. I meant to say 51...Kc6! wins by escorting the a-file passer.
