  nasmichael: After 35...Qxc2+, the whittling down of White's 4-pawn army is a credit to Black's imagination going into the closing of this battle.

It starts out 5 pawns (Black) to 4 (White), and by move 51 (who knows whether the two "Generals" blitzed out the moves, or calculated them with great concentration, or started deliberately, only to be caught short on time in a steadily-quickening series of decisions?),

...Black has 4 of his soldiers, one of them ready to promote, against 2 White footsoldiers.

Instructive in terms of escorting the pawn, assisting in increasing the strength of one's pieces, minding one's space and position in the endgame, and making every move count for something.

Sep-17-19  SpiritedReposte: I'm seeing a win in the final position with <51. ...g4+!>

Definitely not <51. ...d1=Q??> which turns into a draw with <52. Qf8+> or even wins for white if black were daft enough to play <52. ...Kh5?? 53. Qh8#>
