Apr-07-15  zydeco: The finish is 68....Kb7 69.a8=Q+ Kxa8 70.Nc7+. Probably a few other ways to do it.
Aug-18-21  tbontb: A battle between two leading KI aficionados! After 37.Rf8 White is clearly better, so 36....Kg7 is more stubborn. The last (slight) chance may be 45....Bh5 46.Rf8+ Ke7 47.Rf4 Bxf3 48.Rxf3 Rxh2 49.Rf2 though naturally still with advantage to White.
