Oct-26-08  pom nasayao: after 41. . .Kxe7 42. e5. The WKing can pick up the pawns one by one, while the BKing cannot leave the post at e7.
Oct-26-08  Aspirador: Actually, 42.e5? f4! looks drawn while 42.exf5! clearly wins, e.g. 42...Kd6 43.f6! or 42...Kf6 43.d6!
Sep-16-11  M.D. Wilson: Both moves win for White, but 42.exf5 is faster in all variations.
Sep-16-11  Alphastar: <M.D. Wilson> How does 42. e5 win? I think Aspirador is right; after 42. e5? f4! the game is drawn. White can't pick up the black pawns on f4 and h4 with his king (whenever he comes to f3, black plays ..h3 and vice versa) and white can't break through with his own pawns alone.
Sep-18-11  M.D. Wilson: Correct.
