Recent Game.

We both thought White was about to win - and white definitely had a winning lead.  But things became a little complicated and the finishing stroke was not obvious.  White misses a forced mate on move 37.  But still seems to have black's King surrounded.

After making black's king dance, while searching for a finish, white makes one critical error.  I believe (but am not certain) that at this stage, white's only option was a perpetual check draw.

Because once black's passed pawn becomes a queen ... if white allows black any more moves - except king dancing - it means instant defeat. 

 Interesting game (with a friendly opponent) - a few critical mistakes by both players.

This was a theme game  using the Closed Catalan opening
