  Chessical: <43...h5> is Mason's last chance for any kind of a swindle; but Rosenthal does not fall for taking the <h> pawn.

Mason anyway could not defend by using <43...Kd5>:

44.Ke3 Ke5 (<44...c5> does not work either, 45.Kd3 c4+ 46.Kc3 Kc5 47.a4 Kd5 48.a5 a6 49.f6 Ke6 50.Kxc4 Kxf6) <45.Kd3> Kd5 46.Kc3 Kc5 47.Kb3 Kd5 48.Kb4 c5+ 49.Kb3 Kc6 50.Kc4 Kd6 51.a4 a5 52.Kb5 Kd5 53.f6 Ke6 54.Kxa5
