  GrahamClayton: A well played endgame by Wood. After almost putting de Galway in zugzwang on the Queen-side, Wood switches back to the K-side with 47.♗f1, threatening to pick off the Black King-side pawns, eg; 48.h3 gh3 49.♗h3 ♗b7 50.♗g2 ♗a8 51.♗f3 & 52.♗h5, or 47...♔d8 49.hg4 hg4 50.♗e2 & 51.♗g4
Apr-17-22  cehertan: A more direct winning plan on move 47 if black sits is Be7, Bc4, d6! and Be6 winning the f6 pawn and retaining a crushing pin. The loss of the e4 pawn is of no consequence in this line.
