Kibitzer's Corner
Jul-13-09  ughaibu: Why is this a black win? Chessbase give the final move as 25.Kf1
Jan-23-21  ZoneChess: The last move is indeed drawish (-0.24 @depth 32), but capricious. One slip in the 17-move draw line and white ends up essentially a piece down. A better move was 24...h5 so white is going nowhere. In both cases, after the knight exchange, black ends up with the edge positionally plus a queenside pawn majority. On a high level that means the game is won (+2.52 @depth 34 Stockfish 12)
