    You definitely could have won that game. The gist of what you needed to know is a basic pawn promotion and the concept of opposition. Look in any chess book for a scenario with a single pawn/king vs a lone king and how the king needs to escort the pawn up the board. You will be kicking yourself, but you won't ever make that mistake again either

    It wasn't a drawn game,despite the other missed opportunities,the last and decisive mistake was 45...e3.

    45...Kg4 was the winning move,then 46.Ke3,Kxh5 47.Kxe4 (even if white doesn't take the pawn the game is won),g4 48.Ke3,Kg3 not h5 because allows white king to reach f2-g2 drawing the game,etc,etc.......

    21....f5 looks more aggressive for Black.
    White would have done better with 27.Qc4 with threats.

    Ravello hits this right on the head. 45... e3 is the major point of the game.

    I actually analyzed this game on my weblog, hope that is cool Santa Drummer.

    Ravello did indeed have the right line from move 45. The simple explanation of it is that after Black captures the h5 pawn, White cannot stop him from getting his king back to the g-file to escort the black h-pawn home. 0-1

    Surely, Black has a won K+Ps endgame when 35 ... fxe5.

    I wouldnt have played 38...e4, in king pawn endings, you want to get your king to one of the three key points in front of your pawn that gaurantees a win. Like if a pawn was at e4 (for white) the key squares would be e6,d6,f6if your king got there it would gaurantee a win, so I would have left the king next to the pawn, and advanced the other two pawns and
    eventually you would have gotten something like this:



    at this point white couldnt defend the key squares of both pawns and its a win
