  Peligroso Patzer: The move score as given here agrees with ChessBase (Mega Database 2017), but appears to be incorrect at White’s 85th. It is far more likely that Furman played <85. Kg2>, as given by Nikolai Karaklajić in <Let Me Ask You, Do You Know …?>, Chess Informant ©2018, at page 18.

If White had actually played 85. Ke2?, then Black would have been able to defend successfully with 85. … Kg3! 86. Ke3 Kxh4=.

After 85. … Ke5 86. Kf1, the two move scores converge, but if White’s king had actually been on e2 when the Black king played to e5, White’s obvious and strongest continuation would have been: 86. <Ke2-e3>.
