On move 45, White resigns, as the Chessmaster recommends that White moves K-g2 then the Chessmaster recommends Black: Pawn to g4.

Analysis: You move your pawn to g4, which removes the threat on your rook at h3 and advances the passed pawn. White responds with rook to d2, which takes control of the open file. You move your rook to e1. White responds by moving king to f2, which attacks your rook at e1. You move your rook to c1, which moves it to safety, threatens to mate (rook to h2), and attacks White's knight. White responds with the knight to d6, which moves it to safety and checks your king. You move your king to g6, which moves it out of check and threatens mate (rook to h2). White responds by moving the king to e2. You move your rook to a1, which attacks White's pawn at a4. White replies by moving the knight to c4, which attacks your pawn at b6 and blocks your pawn at c5. You move your rook to h2, which checks White's king. White is forced to move king to d3, which moves it out of check and threatens your rook at h2. Your rook takes rook, Rxd2, which checks White's king. White counters with king takes rook, Kxd2.

As a result of this sequence of moves, you win a rook for a rook, which reduces overall material on the board with you ahead. Additionally, White's mobility is somewhat decreased. Also, the development of your pawns is somewhat improved.
