1st Golden Sands 2012 , 2nd round.
Black has five pawns and White has four pawns. And this is the advantage to Black in the end game.Black is ready to pick up the white pawn on f2 and check. Black pawn on a4 is a passed pawn another feather in the Blacks hat.White has to defend its f2-pawn. 43.Kg1 a3 44.Qc2 Black is to promote its Passed pawn to a1Q. Therefore, Black can either exchange its queen with Queen and proceed the pawn without any hinderance.  Or Black can also proceed the same pawn by providing the support using its Queen.  44...Qd5 [44...Qf5 Prepared to exchange the queens. 45.Qc3 (45.Qa2 Qxc5) 45...Qb1+ 46.Kh2 Qb2 Again ready to exchange the queens.] 45.Qa4 a2 46.Qa8+ Kg7 47.Qa4 Qd2 48.Kf1 Qc1+ 49.Ke2 a1Q And Black wins.
