Kibitzer's Corner
Mar-07-03  Marnoff Mirlony: Seems like Cardoso was playing for the draw when he exchanged all of the major pieces in one quick shot.
Sep-03-04  wall: The game move 45.Kd6 draws and if 45.d6 Kc6 draws. But does White have winning possibilites after 45.h5 gxh5 46.gxh5 and perhaps winning a tempo?
Sep-03-04  acirce: 45.h5 gxh5 46.gxh5 even loses: ..c4 47.bxc4+ Kc5 48.d6 Kc6 49.c5 a4 50.Kd4 b3 51.axb3 a3 52.Kc3 f5

45.h5 gxh5 46.g5 holds the draw, though: 46..h4 47.d6 h3 (..Kc6 48.g6! winning) 48.d7 h2 49.d8=Q h1=Q 50.Qb8+ and perpetual

However, 45.g5! straight away is the winning move. After 45..c4 46.bxc4+ Kc5 47.d6 Kc6, this time White has the instructive breakthrough using both pawns: 48.h5! threatening hxg6 and on ..gxh5 then g6 fxg6 Ke6.
