 Tal Memorial 2011
Carlsen ties for the first place with Aronian in the just concluded Tal Memorial 2011. This is the position reached in the final round of Nakamura vs Carlsen, where Nakamura resigned. Will someone please show me the winning line which I could not find? I could go as far as winning White a3 pawn which didn't seem to ensure victory.

White to move (resigned!) :o

The idea was Bh5 followed by the king heading to the queenside and making another passed pawn.

Thank you, it appears little technique is needed to create another passer.

Chessmaster gives the following line as the best solution for White:

1.Bc7 Bd5 2.Bh2 Bb3 3.Be5 Bc4 4.Bc7 Be2 5.Bh2 Kf5 6.Ke3 Ke6 7.Kf2 Kd5 8.Kg3 Kc4 9.Bg1 Kb3 10.Kxh3 Kxa3 11.Bc5 f2 12.Bxf2 Kxb4
13.Kg3 Kb3 14.Kf4 b4 15.Ke3 Kc2 16.Kf4 b3 17.Bd4 a5 18.Ke3 Bd3 19.Kf4 a4 20.Ke3 a3 and White is lost, as queen promotion is soon coming and mate is inevitable.
