Jun-16-12  lost in space: I have no comp available to check, but it seems that Black was not bad at all up to move 40; but 41...a4 simply loses a pawn, or?

By the way, the opening with 6. h3, later g4 and 0-0-0 is my secret weapon vs. the KID

  Honza Cervenka: 41...a4 was a blunder but after 41...axb4 42.Kxb4 or 41...Kh5 42.bxa5 white with extra Pawn should be able to win anyway.
Jun-16-12  Marmot PFL: I wonder if Moro just lost track of the moves played. After 41..ab4 42 Kb4 Kh5 I don't see an obvious winning plan for white.

  Honza Cervenka: <Marmot PFL> The winning plan of white can be to bring the King to c6, then the Rook to c8 via e8, and Black Pawns will fall. Black has no counter-play to stop it and his eventual passed Pawn on h-file is too few and too slow to counter white central Pawns.
Jun-17-12  Marmot PFL: Very good plan. I worked it out to a Q+P ending where black queens the h pawn and white the c or d pawn but white has 2 pawns left. Unless white blunders this would be a long, slow loss for black so it makes practical sense to say the heck with it.
