  wwall: Instead of 41.g4? which should draw, White can win after 41.h3 Kb6 42.g4 Kc7 43.gxf5 Kd7 44.Kf2 Ke7 45.Kg3 Kf7 46.Kg4 Ke7 47.Kh5 Kd6 48.Kh6 and 49.Kxh7, then marching his rook pawn down to queen.

Instead of 41...f4?, Black can draw after 41...fxg4 42.fxg4. h6 43.h4 Kb6 44.Ke4 Kc7 45.g5 fxg5 46.hxg5 hxg5 47.Kxe5 g4 48.Kf4 Kd6 49.Kxg4 Ke5, and White cannot win.

  wwall: Was 35.Kd3 played or was 35.Ke3 played? Fine and Benko analyze this ending assuming that that White King was on e3, but in this game, White never plays Ke3.

Not only 41.h3 wins 41.Ke3 as well
