  Phony Benoni: A nice final shot, after <49...a5+>:

Now <50.Nxa5+!> forced winning simplifications. If Black doesn't take, then simply 51.Nxb7 wins a piece. If 50...Nxa5 51.Rf6+, and Black's king must abandon his rook

Relatively best is 50...Rxa5 51.Rf6+ Kc7 52.Rf7+ Kc6 53.Rxb7 Rxa4+ 54.Kxa4 Kxb7, but after 55.Kb5 the ♔+♙ ending is an easy win. Black might also go for some nuisance value with 53...Re5 54.Rxh7 Rxe4+, but the two extra pawns should be plenty.
