Kibitzer's Corner
Dec-21-14  Knight13: <Text 40. h4?!>: Better is 40. Re5, cutting off Black's King, and then pushing the b-pawn instead of the a-pawn.

<Text 43. h5??>: Again, White should have played 43. Re5.

<Text 44. Ka3> White was a dead man walking even if he had played 44. Kb1 or 44. Kb3: 44. Kb1 Ke1 45. Re5+ Re2; 45. a6 Re2 46. a7 d2, threatening mate next move, or 44. Kb3 Ke1 45. Re5+ Re2 46. Rxe2+ Kxe2 47. a6 d2 48. 48. a7 d1=Q+; 45. a6 Re2 46. a7 d2 47. a8=Q d1=Q+ 48. Kb4 Qd2+/48. Ka3/c3 Qc1+ forking king and rook.
