  Peligroso Patzer: The position after 52. Ke4 is analyzed by Nikolai Karaklajić in <Let Me Ask You, Do You Know ?>, Chess Informant 2018 at page 18, citing, however, a different source game, as follows: Ushakov Dachitashvilli, USSR 1968 (which is not in the CG games database).

Based on that analysis, after 53.Kg3 Kd5, Inkiov played inaccurately with 54.Kf3, but it was only after 54...Kd4 55.f5? that he threw away the win.

Correct would have been (following the play in Ushakov vs. Dashitashvilli with move numbers conformed to Inkiov vs. Schmidt): 54.Kh3! Kd4 55.Kh4! (gaining distant opposition) 55...Kd5 56.Kg3 Ke6 (56...Kd4 57.Kf3!+) 57.Kf2 Kf6 58.Ke3 Kf5 59.Kf3 Kf6 60.Ke4 Ke6 61.f5+ Kf7 62.Ke5 Ke7 63.f6+ Kf8 64.Kf4! and wins.

  Peligroso Patzer: One other interesting point to note regarding the main game (Inkiov vs. Schmidt) is that, although 55. f5? threw away the win for White, a move pair later, after 56. Kg4, Black had to find the only drawing move (56. ... Kd6!=) because 56. ... Kf6? 57. Kf4 would be +-.

With the Black king on d6, however, he can reply to 57. Kf4 with 57. ... Kd5!=.
