  offramp: 41...g5 might be better. Black is then threatening ...Ng7 and ...Nf5+ winning a pawn.

<41...g5 might be better.> Interesting comment. Could you post more details?

It looks like in reply to 41...g5, 42. hxg5 is practically forced (otherwise White's pawn structure would be further weakened).

At that moment, if 42...fxg5 43. Ke4, or if 42...Rxg5 43. g3 Kd5 44. Rc1 Rg4 45. Rh1, and White seems to be hanging on.

Mar-04-08  Knight13: <41...g5 might be better. Black is then threatening ...Ng7 and ...Nf5+ winning a pawn.> If White takes then Black can get a potential king-side passed pawn. Other than that, he didn't need ...g5 to play ...Ng7-f5+. He could've done it with ...g6 too but the threat is easily handled.

<If White takes then Black can get a potential king-side passed pawn.>

Like I said, White has to take. But he can play 41...g5 42. hxg5 fxg5 <43. f3> and Black won't get a kingside passed pawn.

<He could've done it with ...g6 too but the threat is easily handled> Agreed. On 42...Ng7 43. g4.

Sep-13-09  WhiteRook48: 48 Nd2 1/2-1/2???
Sep-14-09  Boomie: <WhiteRook48: 48 Nd2 1/2-1/2???>

You got a problem with that? White shouldn't offer the draw, black shouldn't accept or what?

Mar-02-12  master of defence: IsnĀ“t 30...Nxb2 better for black?
Jul-06-14  gamer555: Wouldn't it better to play 30. Rb3 instead of Rc3, or why alekhine didn't capture b2 pawn? If someone knows answer please help me !!
