White has an extra pawn and a clear path to the b6-pawn

Evaluate 53.Kc4, sacrificing the bishop to get at the b-pawn. Knights have well known problems against RPs.

Premium Pain November 2019 edition

From the Premium International Nov 2019 just finished

Losses must be checked and fixed but I was hoping for fewer losses in this tournament. I had to let this game sit for a few days before I could summon the willpower to look at the following games more closely.

Premium International A Rd4.7

After 18..Ne4(Diagram)

Black anticipates 19.dxc5 and is ready to recapture 19..Nxc5 when the knight will press the weak b3-pawn. Otherwise the knight will be strong in the centre against any neutral move

What do you recommend for White?

Black’s king is rather exposed as White clearly is going to the attack

Black has won a pawn but can this be exploited? Possibly there is something happening on the d-file and the Bh3 is also looking quite threatening
