May-12-05  Runemaster: I like this efficient ending win by GM Emms (although admittedly against a much lower-rated opponent.

After 31 moves, you might say that in theory White stands slightly better, having an outside passed pawn. However, the pawn hardly even moves. Emms follows through the plan of mobilising his K-side majority and makes winning look easy.
