I think black should have won that game. I would have brought blacks king over to the A pawn and push and exchange blacks A pawn for whites B pawn. I think move 45 was wrong and lead to the draw. I think the draw was still premature as you could have tried exchanging down to just 1 pawn. There's always a chance your opponent can mess up and give away the opposition.

at your level you should know how to coordinate an easy pawn endgame such as that. do you know of opposition? when you bring all of your pawns in the same row it is much easier to create a passed pawn.
yeh, this position looks good if there's a forcing line that could make it

With trading Blacks A pawn for whites B pawn, I would try to aim for a setup similar to this, white's kings has to always guard the passed pawn and it's a matter of opposition. I don't know if this is winning or if it is even attainable, buts it is what I would aim for.[/b]
