Bh3 I switched plans and went after the night vs bishop advantage but right here I think playing for an h5 advance [via Kf2 then Rh1] is best for white. 31.Kf1 ,Ng7 32.g4 ,Ne6 33.g5 ,Bg7 34.Re4 ,Rd8 35.Bxe6, fxe6 –here he took his longest think of the game – about 11 min he told me that he was looking at 35.Rxe6 and later on sacking the bishop on e5. 36.Kf2 ,Rf7 37.Rh1 ,Bf8 38.Kg3 ,Be7 39.Re2 ,Rdf8 40.Reh2,Kg7 41.Rh3 ,h6 42.Kg4 ,Rh8 43.Kg3 ,Rf5- here I offered a draw but he declined. 44.Kg4 ,Rhf8 45.R1h2,Rh8 46.Rh1 ,Rh7 47.R1h2,Rf8 48.Nf2 ,Rd8 49.Nd3 ,Rdh8 50.Nf2 ,Bd8 51.Ne4 ,Rf8 52.Nf6 ,h5+ 53.Kf3 ,Bxf6 54.gxf6+Kf7 –here I offered another draw but he declined. 55.Ke2 ,Rd8 56.Kd3 ,Rg8 57.Rg2 ,Ke8 58.Rhg3,Kf7 59.Rg1. 1/2 by 3 fold repletion on move 68 and my clock read 17:49 and his 19:23.
I was playing for a draw from move #1, so, obviously I was very happy to get the queens and a couple minor pieces off the board so quick, but it was because I played for a draw that I missed 41.h5 and instead played the text. I would like some help from the good players(preferably 1800+ but everyone's help is welcome )on some winning lines for me (white) after #25...a5.Thanks a lot
