  Peligroso Patzer: This game (from the position after <14. Qc6>) is analyzed in <Amateur to IM>, by Jonathan Hawkins 2012, Mongoose Press, at pp. 51-57.

It is a marvellously patient win by the great Ulf Andersson.

  Peligroso Patzer: <whiteshark>: In the source cited in my previous post, Jonathan Hawkins suggests <26. ... Re6 27. Kf4 Rf6+>.
Apr-28-15  Mating Net: Two unspectacular moves stand out.

23.g4 prevents the Black f and h pawns from advancing two squares and enables White to control more space on the K side.

27.h5 fixes the h6 pawn as a target for future harvest. Opening the h file by capturing on g5 would not have given White any advantage.
