  wwall: 42...Nc4 is probably weak. Black should try 42...Ne4, threatening 43...Nc3+ and 44...Nxa4, getting his pawn back. After 42...Ne4 43.Kf3 Nc3 44.a5+ Kb5 Black may be able to hold.

After 42...Nc4 43.Kf3, it looks like 43...f5 is the losing move, allowing 44.e4 and White breaks through the kingside. Black should probably try 43...Kc6 44.Ke4 g6 to prevent White from penetrating on the k-side.

May-30-16  sneaky pete: After 28... Rfc8? Staunton indicates 29.Rxf7 ..

and white should win.

Of course black could have played 28... Bxb4 first and only after 29.Rxb4 Rfc8 when white will lose his extra pawn in a few moves.
