  An Englishman: Good Evening: 49....? Black to play and win.

The game itself is a fascinating study in positional pawn sacrifices. Around move 40, I thought that both sides were completely tied up, but Black found a way to break through. However, I keep thinking that White could have held onto a draw somewhere.

  FSR: These Richter-Rauzer lines where Black has a doubled-pawn complex (f7, f6, e6, and d6) in return for the bishop pair are very interesting. Here, White ends up in an ending two pawns up, but he's so tied up that it's impossible to see how he can exploit his material advantage and win. Then, shockingly, Black finds a way to sac a <third> pawn and force the win of the exchange. Despite White having more than enough material for the exchange, Black then wins because he annexes White's pawn on a2, after White Black's pawn on a3 is ready to march in to promote. Fascinating.
