  offramp: 54.Kxg4.

White's last move is quite funny!

  FSR: 62...gxh4 63.gxh5+ (63.Kxh4 also draws) Kxh5 64.Kg2 and 65.Kh1 draws, in light of the bishop being the opposite color of the rook pawn's queening square.
Nov-25-15  Howard: According to the tournament book, Alekhine missed a couple wins here.

  NM JRousselle: 52... Qe5+ looks very strong for Black
Nov-17-20  superstoned: <NM JRousselle> and <Calli> According to Alekhine, 52...Qe5+ 53.g3 Nh4 leads to a drawn queen ending. White doesn't play 54.Nxg6 allowing Black to keep a minor piece on the board after 54...Qxg7 55.Qe4+ Ng6, but first moves the king out of the pin with

54.Kh3! Now all the minors come off after 54...Nxf5 55.Nxf5 and White's queen seizes the b1 square forever, saving the half-point.
