I watch the round 7 game live in the internet and was quite disappointed when Elgin misplay a clear winning game. IM Jimmy Liew point out the miss opportunity in his blog here. Below is my  analysis with some help of a friend name - Houdini :)

M.E.Lee Kah (1984)- B.Hasenohr (2155)
World Youth Under 16 Chess Olympiad, Round 7, 25.10.2011

1. d4 d5 2. c4 c6 3. Nc3 Nf6 4. Nf3 dxc4 5. a4 Bf5 6. e3 e6 7. Bxc4 Bb4 8. O-O
Nbd7 9. Qe2 O-O 10. e4 Bg6 11. Bd3 Bh5 12. e5 Nd5 13. Nxd5 cxd5 14. Qe3 Be7 15.
Bd2 Nb8 16. b4 Nc6 17. Rab1 Bg6 18. Rfc1 Bxd3 19. Qxd3 f6 20. Qc3 fxe5 21. dxe5
Rc8 22. b5 Nb8 23. Qe3 b6 24. Nd4 Qd7 25. Qh3 Rxc1+ 26. Rxc1 Rc8 27. Rxc8+ Qxc8
28. Qxe6+ Qxe6 29. Nxe6 Nd7 30. f4 Kf7 31. Nc7 Nc5 32. Nxd5 Nxa4 33. Kf2 Nc5
34. Nxe7 Kxe7 35. Bb4 Ke6 36. Bxc5 bxc5 37. Ke3 Kd5 38. Kd3 c4+ 39. Kc3 h5 



40.h4?! This is still winning but white has a stronger move  40. g3! The idea is to play in your strong side. White has a majority on the kingside ( 4 against 2) so he has to make a breakthrough there by creating passed pawn there. With 40.h4, white prevent his g-pawn to participate in the break trough.  40...Kc5 (40... g6 41. h3 Kc5 42. g4 hxg4 43. hxg4 Kxb5 44. f5 gxf5 45. g5! (45. gxf5 Kc6 46. Kxc4 a5 47. f6 Kd7 48. Kb5) 45... f4 46. e6 Kc6 47. g6 f3 48. e7 Kd7 49. g7 f2 50. e8=Q+! Kxe8 51. g8=Q+) 41. f5 Kxb5 (41... Kd5 42. e6 Kd6 43. Kxc4 and white simply win ) 42. f6! White choose the furthers passed pawn so that black's king can stop it 42...gxf6 43. exf6 Kc6 44. f7 Kd7 45. f8=Q)

40...g6 Now black's g6 and h5 pawn hold white's h4-g2-f4 pawn. 41. Kb4 Kd4 42. e6 c3 43. e7 c2 44. e8=Q c1=Q 45. Qe5+ Kd3 46. Qd5+ Ke3 


47. Qf3+?  1/2-1/2
Both player is on time trouble but unfortunately Elgin missed a clear win here which could turn the overall result 2.5-1.5 in Malaysia favor if he choose to exchange the queen with 47. Qc5+! Qxc5+ 48. Kxc5 Kxf4 49. Kc6 Kg4 50. Kb7 Kxh4 51. Kxa7 Kg3 52. b6 Kxg2 53. b7 and white queen first and  black's passed pawn is still far from queening. Anyway a good result for Elgin and the team against much higher rated team.
