  mjk: <Knight13>, perhaps, but 88.♔h2? blunders away the draw <Nalimov>.

  cocker: Position after 69 ♖a1 is considered in Nunn's book, UCE, diagram 54d. White found half a dozen vital moves but went astray with 88 ♔h2 (as pointed out by <mjk>). As well as 88 ♖g8 given by <Chessical>, 88 ♖a8 or 88 ♖b8 would have drawn.
