  Chessical: Lowtzky leaves his Bishop on <a6>. One way to rescue it was:

<28. g5> hxg5 29. Rxg5 Ne4 30. Rxb5 Rd6 31. Re1 Nxc3 32. Rb7 with some advantage to Black.

It seems likely that Lowtzky intended to sacrifice it for Q-side passed pawns. If that was the case he would have been better to concentrate on supporting and pushing his <a> pawn.

He would then have a R v N+2P ending.

For instance <42. Ra1> Rxd4 43. a7 Rd8 44. a8=Q Rxa8 45. Rxa8 g5

or;

<42... Rb4+> 43. Kc5 Rb8 44. a7 Ra8 45. Kc6 Nxd4+ 46. Kb7 Rxa7+ 47. Rxa7 Kf6

In both of these positions I believe that White should be able to hold for a draw.
