  patzer2: Avrukh's little combination to remove the guard and win a pawn with 13. Nxb7! gives him just a small advantage, but it's enough in this game to help him eventually establish a decisive passed pawn.

Note that 13...Qxb7 14. Rxc5 Qxb2 15. Ne5! exploits a pin on Black's Knight to give White an even bigger advantage than the game continuation.

  patzer2: Avrukh's 47. Qd5! is an instructive offensive and defensive move combined. It protects the King position from Black's planned incursion, while at the same time enabling the passed pawn to successfully continue its journey to the Queening square.
