  hesyrett: In the final position, White is in zugzwang.  On 50 b4 cxb4+ 51 ♔xb4 ♔b6! Black has the opposition and will eventually win White's e-♙ and the game.  On 50 ♔c4 ♔c6 White can't prevent 51...♔d5 winning the e-♙.  So White must try 50 ♔d3 ♔b6 51 ♔c3 ♔b5 and now Black's ♔ makes it to b4 and wins White's b-♙.  Nice work, JP!
Mar-31-16  moodini: 48.. black to play would make a nice endgame puzzle. It was shown in a Leonard Barden column in the Guardian and defeated me. I'm not sure which day, perhaps Thursday? Some will no doubt see the idea in seconds and say "too easy", others will struggle for a while and think it is too hard.

I like the way that black uses the white pawn on b3 to block white's king, which then has to give way and either allow access to d5, to b4 or a pawn exchange and then black will be able to get to white's king side.
