Jul-06-14  bystander: 8) Bb3 gives black counterplay, e.g. 8) Bb3 Nd4x 9) Nd4x ed4x 10) Bd5 Nd5x 11) Nd5x Bf6. Instead of 8) Bb3 maybe 8) de5x Ne5x 9) Ne5x de5x 10) Qd8x Bd8x 11) Bb3 c6 gives white some better play.
Jul-06-14  bystander: 9) Nce2? I think Black can win the d4 pawn now after Bf3x. Either 9) d5 or 9) de5x looks better for white.
Jan-27-16  ophintor: How is this a draw? After ..e2, the White King just has to move away and Black can easily queen shortly after. What am I missing?

It's White's move in the final position? Also the pawn is on d3... so 63.Ke1 d2+ 64.Kd1 Kd3 stalemate.

Aug-08-16  djvdpc1017: it's White's move after 62...Ke3.
White plays 63.Ke1 and draws.
If 63...d2, 63. Kd1 wins the pawn or Black stalemates White.
Nov-21-18  Straclonoor: Only 48.f4 keeps the draw. 48.Kd2? goes to tough postion for white.
