Sep-03-04  wall: Can't White win this endgame of 6 pawns vs B + 3 Ps? Maybe 30.Ke3 instead of 30.c3. Maybe 37.a4 instead of 37.c4. Maybe 39.a4 or 39.c5 instead of 39.a3. Maybe 40.c5 instead of 40.Ke5.

30. Ke3 Kd5 31. c3 Bd5 (or else 31. g3 b4) ruins the queen side pawns.

37. a4 leads to some complicated lines and I am not using a computer, hard to say if there is a chance there. I would imagine white just thought it would be better to have his a-pawn locked on a dark square so that the bishop couldn't reach it.

39. c5 Bg8 40. a3 a4 41. e5 Bh7 42. f6 Bg8 and white has to give up a pawn, same thing with 40. c5

Sep-24-15  PugnaciousPawn: It also seems to me that with careful play, White can win this game.
