  zydeco: It definitely took a few minutes for me to calculate the king-and-pawn endgame after 43....Bxd4: 44.Kxd4 axb5 45.Kd5 and now there's no good way for black to trade queenside pawns (if 45.....b4 46.Kc4), so 45....f6 46.h4 g5 47.hxg5 fxg5 48.e5 and white queens first or 45.....h4 46.e5 g5 47.h3 zugzwang or 46....h3 47.gxh3 g5 48.c5+ Kc7 49.Kc5 b4 50.Kxb4 Kxc6 51.Kc4 zugzwang.
