Black had to move his king but where?

Black chose 45...Kf5? and lost:

Game continuation:

45...Kf5 46.Ref4+ Kg5 47.Rhg4+ Kh5 48.Rg3 Rfe8 49.Rf7 Kh4 50.Rgxf3 Re5+ 51.Ka6 Re6 52.Rb7 Ra8+ 53.Ra7 Rb8 54.Rf4+ Kg5 55.Rg7+ Kh6 56.Rb7 Ra8+ 57.Ra7 Rb8 58.Rb4 Rxe3 59.Rd7 Ra3+ 60.Kb5 Kg6 61.b7 Kf6 62.Kb6 Ke6 63.Rc7 1-0

Stockfish gives the following analysis after 45. Rbe4+

1) =0.00 (34 ply) 45...Kd5 46.Rd4+ Ke6 47.Rhe4+ Kf6 48.Rf4+ Ke6 49.Rxf8 Rxf8 50.Kc6 Rc8+ 51.Kb7 Rf8 52.Kc6

2) +3.02 (33 ply) 45...Kd6 46.Ref4 f2 47.Rh1 Kd5 48.Rd1+ Ke5 49.Rf1 Rfd8 50.Rf7 Rd5+ 51.Ka6 Rd6 52.Re7+ Kd5 53.Rd1+ Kc4 54.Rc7+ Kb3 55.Rb1+ Ka2 56.Rcc1 Ra8+ 57.Kb7 Rdd8 58.Rf1 Rab8+ 59.Ka6 Ra8+ 60.Kb5 Rab8 61.Rb4 Rf8 62.Kc4 Rfc8+ 63.Kd3 Ka3 64.Rbb1 Rd8+ 65.Ke2 Rb7 66.Rxf2 Ka4 67.Rf5 Re8 68.Kf2 Rg8 69.Rfb5 Rgb8 70.R1b4+ Ka3 71.e4 Ra8

E. 1.1
45...Kd5! was the correct move to draw

But Black has to defend carefully for example after:

45...Kd5 46.Rd4+ Ke6 47.Rhe4+ Kf6 48.Rf4+

E. 1.2
Black to move at 48

Black has to play 48...Ke6! not 48...Ke5?

If 48...Ke5 then 49. Rxf8 Rxf8


50 b7! f2 51. Rf4!

E. 1.3
White is winning
