BCC Champ Rd. 7: Times-Rihel 1-0

This game includes a couple of nice features worth noticing: 1) White's impressive connected passed pawns in the center after move 31 and 2) move 37 which takes advantage of a pin on the long diagonal to force a queen trade.

P.S. It seems that I may have found a bug in Chess Publisher. In the game below Black doesn't actually capture a pawn on move 46 with a Rook from off the board! The "extra" Rook on e8 should be ignored for the rest of the game.
