Aug-28-12  vikram2791: Seriously, 42...Nc2?? In the endgame? What does Black think he can do?

  Dionysius1: <vikram2791> add two more passed pawns I suppose. The a pawn is lost anyway, and I think Black either has to resign or decide the most creative way to lose the N. 2 pawns is the best he can get for it. If he can hold white's a pawn up and roll his own passed pawns, I can see where he thought he might have a chance. A pair of passed pawns on the 3rd rank could be as strong as the White rook, for example.

  Dionysius1: But I don't know what Black's 46th and 54th are about - I'd be pushing those pawns as fast as I could!

I don't think Black can make much further progress by pushing either the d-pawn or e-pawn,

46... d4 47. a6 ♖c8 48. a7 ♖a8 49. ♖a6+, or
46... e4 47. a6 ♖c8 48. a7 ♖a8 49. ♖a6+ ♔e5 50. ♘c6+ Either way, the Black king is forced back, and cannot help the pawns advance.
