  fredthebear: Yes, <Whitehat1963>. It surprised me.

This ending was well-played by Geza Maroczy. The White queen's lateral threats (pins) are irritating. The pawn break 52.g4! shakes things up, as Black should not capture, else the f-pawn advances w/threats. Maroczy uses his battery on the light squares to create a passed pawn, putting stress on Black.

Black's isolani did him no favors, as 19.Bd4 proved quite stable for White, contributing to the finish. Raking bishops in the center can be dangerous, especially in support of a penetrating heavy piece.
