May-28-13  Poisonpawns: Fantastic game with a very instructive ending. Encyclopedia Of Chess Endings gives 54..Kd4? saying that 54..Kd3 draws and they give two lines starting with 55.Nd5 and Nd1 respectively.These actually do lead to draws. However the tablebases show the win for white with the amazing 55.Nf1!.This move was missed.
Oct-15-16  Howard: So, in other words, ECE was incorrect in claiming that 54...Kd3 "draws" ? The move 55.Nf1 would have won anyway, then.
