Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-10-17  Straclonoor: After 38 moves pawn ending goes to theoretical draw Queen vs. bishop pawn. Here is the line by Stockfish
(-9.75): 39.Kf3 c5 40.a4 a5 41.Ke3 Ke5 42.Kf3 d4 43.c4 d3 44.Ke3 d2 45.Kxd2 Kf4 46.Kd3 Kg3 47.Ke4 Kxh3 48.Kd5 Kxg4 49.Kxc5 Kf3 50.Kb6 g4 51.Kxb7 g3 52.c5 g2 53.b3 g1Q 54.c6 Qd1 55.c7 Qxb3+ 56.Ka8 Qc3

Huge evaluation to black means that engine compares Queen more higher than passed pawn.

After 44.Kxh4?? pawn endgame lost for white
(-61.05): 44...c4 45.Kg3 Ke4 46.Kf2 Kf4 47.Ke2 Kxg4 48.Ke3 Kf5 49.Kd4 Ke6 50.Ke3 Ke5 51.Kd2 Ke4 52.Ke2 a5 53.a4 d4 54.Kd2 Kd5 55.Ke2 dxc3 56.Kd1 Ke4 57.Kc1 Kd3 58.Kd1 c2+ 59.Kc1 Ke4 60.Kxc2 Kd4 61.Kb2 Kd3 62.Kc1 Kc3 63.Kd1 Kb2 64.Kd2 Kb3 65.Kc1 c3 66.Kb1 Kxa4 67.Kc2 Kb4 68.Kd1 Kb3 69.Ke1 c2

45....d4 wins more faster because white can play on 45....Kf5 46.Kg3 (not 46.Kh5) with long play
Jul-11-17  WorstPlayerEver: Thanks for the comments.

Funny position after 25 moves:

White to play mates in 40 moves 😜
