  GrahamClayton: 30...ab4+? was a mistake, as it gives White an outside passed pawn, as well as allowing White to penetrate with his King.

The better option was 30..a4, keeping the position blocked. 31.b5 can be answered with 31...c5.

With 41.h5 Akiva threatens to create another passed pawn - this time on the h-file after g5, so in order to stop this, Black has to weaken the e6-pawn.
