Oct-06-07  Autoreparaturwerkbau: 45...? Black to move (+ to get a passed pawn in 2 moves).

  fredthebear: After 47.Kxf4 Black will promote a pawn on the queenside. Follow Capablanca's Rule and advance the unopposed pawn first. So 47...c3 threatening cxb2. 48.bxc3 b3 instead of recapturing and the White king cannot retreat fast enough to prevent Black's pawn promotion b3-b2-b1=Q.

For the sake of correctness, it should be noted that Black can also win by 47...b3 and 48...c3 but it's technically an incorrect move order. It's a bad habit to saddle one's self with a backward pawn on the half-open file. This would violate Capablanca's Rule. Advancing the Black b-pawn first would have been a losing blunder had the same queenside pawn structure been farther back, in Black's half of the board, giving the White king time to respond.

**** ****

(Strictly FYI: Structurally, the two white pawns on the kingside separated by one file can protect themselves without the aid of the White king. Should the Black king go for one of White's kingside pawns, the other pawn would advance and the Black king dare not capture the pawn that lags behind. For this dual protection system to work, the unthreatened pawn must advance one square prior to his partner pawn being captured and then advance again immediately after the capture. Now the pawn grabbing Black king has no way to catch up to the advanced White pawn that was not taken. However, NONE OF THIS MATTERS ON THE KINGSIDE IN THIS GAME, as play should continue with the Black queenside pawns promptly promoting as first described. The Black king would be foolish to go pawn grabbing here.)
