  offramp: I know this was a blitz game, but it does show that even great players can make a mess of K+P endings:

33.Re2± Rxe2+ 34.Kxe2 Kd5 35.Kd3 a5??

[35...b5 36.a3 h5±]

36.a4 Kc6

[36...b5 37.axb5 a4 ]

37.Ke4 b5 38.axb5+ Kxb5 39.d5

[39.Kd5 a4 40.Ke6 ]

39...Kb6 40.Ke5

[40.Kxf4! Kc7 41.Ke5 Kd7 ]

40...Kc7 41.Kxf4??

[41.Ke6 Kd8 ]

41...b5?

[41...Kd6 42.Ke4 b5=]

42.Ke5 b4 43.f4?

[43.Ke6 a4 44.Ke7 ]

43...a4= and that's that!
