Coming Down The Home Stretch ...

Unlike the famous comedy routine, there are no horses "neck and neck," coming down the home stretch in this two-horse race.   Still, the kids from Stevenson Elementary are divided as to how to proceed.  Should they hug the rail or move to the outside?  The choice is now  up to Earthlings.
After 40 ... a2, our astronaut Greg Chamitoff took time off from his training (he's getting ready to head back into outer space) to send his 41st move: 41. Kb2.
And our 2009 Elementary School Champions and fellow club members have come up with two choices to consider:  41 ... d3 and 41 ... Bf1.
