  nasmichael: King and pawns ending leads to a Winawer win--because of the active Black king.
Mar-05-10  donehung: IMO whites 27 Ng4 is the losing mistake, it seems the ensuing tempo gaing pawn moves,and the squares they occupy after are key to Winawers victory.

  tpstar: 49. h4 Kc2 50. Ke2 Re8+ cleans up.

Black sacrificed a Pawn to reach a won R&P endgame, with the Rook supporting the passed Pawn from behind and the centralized King overcoming White for 0-1.

Oct-08-19  SymphonicKnight: Stockfish indicates the losing mistake was 42.Rxa6??, and that 42.c6 would have likely ended with a draw.
