  Honza Cervenka: 51...Rb1 was a grave mistake. Stein simply overlooked that Pg5 is indirectly covered by fork on h7 when the King stays on f8. After 51...Ke8 white has no way to win all black Pawns without loss of Pg5. The game could continue 51...Ke8 52.Nf2 Kd8 53.Nxh3 Kc8 54.Kg2 Kb8 55.Ra4 Kb7 56.Nf4 Kb6 57.Nxg6 Rb1 58.Rxa2 Rb5 and Pg5 falls with drawish K+R+N vs K+R ending.
