Oct-14-16  SimplicityRichard: The Petrov seems to be an opening where Black needs to be an endgame expert. Most Petrov games go to the endgame.#
Jun-25-17  zydeco: Very interesting endgame. After 51.Kf3 Nf1 52.Ke2 Ng3+ 53.Kf2 Ne4+ 54.Ke3, it looks like it's black's who's fighting for the draw.

After 51....f5! white is in trouble.

56. Kf4?

  fredthebear: <faulty> 56.Kf4 is a safe, reasonable move.

Just remember, a king should use caution when approaching an opposing knight diagonally on the same color of square as the knight (next to the knight), for the knight might choose to move away with check. As far as colors go, it's generally better for a king to approach a knight from the opposite color square (next to the knight). For example, if the knight is on a dark square, the king is generally better off approaching from a light square (next to the knight).

Sorry to be so long-winded, but this rule of thumb can come in real handy, especially in blitz.
