Jul-06-18  PJs Studio: Instructive K and pawn ending
Premium Chessgames Member
  Gregor Samsa Mendel: According to The Computer, white misplayed the K and P ending. He would have retained significant winning chances after 49 c5 or 49 Kg2 followed by 50 c5. The position would have still been even after 56 Ke2; giving black a connected passed h-pawn with 56 hxg4 is a pretty obvious mistake. Drawing chances were still possible after 57 c5. The general rule for endings is that passed pawns must be pushed.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: I'm not sure what I was thinking when I wrote, "He would have retained significant winning chances after 49 c5 or 49 Kg2 followed by 50 c5" when I meant to say "49 f4 or 49 Kg2 followed by 50 f4."

  ChessHigherCat: <GSM> Mixing up c5 with f4 is what you get for flipping the board to play along with black as the winning side! You got 29. Kg2 right, though. Somebody should invent a feature where you can just "mouse-over" a square and the correct designation appears in a pop-up window no matter what view mode you're in.

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: <CHC>--I doubt there's a possible feature that would keep me from making errors in notation, or errors in general. To err is human, although there are those out there who doubt my humanity.

p.s. I think you meant to say, "49. Kg2" when you said, "29. Kg2."
