Hi,

The following endgame happened in an on-line blitz game :


[FEN "5k2/p5pp/1p2p3/4P3/8/8/PPP4P/2K5 w - - 0 31"]

31. b4 b5 32. c4 bxc4 33. Kc2 Ke7 34. b5 Kd7
35. a4 Kc7 36. a5 Kb7 37. h4 a6 38. b6 g6
39. Kc3 h6 40. Kxc4 Kc6 41. Kd4 g5 42. hxg5 hxg5
43. Ke4 g4 44. Kf4


While kibitzing, I did not know where black went wrong, can you spot it ?



crafty does not like 40 ..c6. here is an alternative.
