The ending is tense. How should black proceed?
- 47..Bxd5 dumping off the passive bishop for the active knight
- 47…Rf8 and trade off the passive rook for white’s active rook
- 47…h4 fix the kingside pawns on light squares for the bishop
- Something else
Black to Play
Deep into the ending black has a dangerous looking passed pawn well supported by the rook from behind. What should white do?
