  fredthebear: The time consumption of advancing a passed pawn has given away the initiative in many turnabouts. Here, 47...Qc4 piles on the pinned White bishop while still guarding against promotion. An attempt at X-ray protection by the White queen would still lose the bishop after 48.Qa6 RxBf1+. Clearly, rooks (notice Black's Rf8) are far superior back rank defenders than are minor pieces.
