  wwall: An interesting endgame. After 41.Rd6+, instead of 41...Ke7, perhaps better is 41...Ke5 42.Rh6 Ra3+ and if 43.Kh2 (43.Kf2 may be better) 43...Kf4 44.Rxh5 Kg4 45.Rh8 a5 46.h5 a4 47.h6 Kg5 looks good for Black.

After 51.Rg6+, perhaps best is 51...Kf8! instead of 51...Kh7, threatening 52...Rb7. If 51.Rg6+ Kf8 52.g4 (52.Rh6 Rb7 53.Rf6+ Kg7 54.Rg6+ Kh8 55.Rh6 Rh7 wins for Black) 52...b4 (threatening 53...b3) 53.Rc6 Kg7 (threatening 54...b3) 54.Rg6+ Kh7 55.Rh6+ Kg8 56.Rg6+ Rg7 looks like a win for Black.
