Oct-20-18  siggemannen: I don't see any huge problems with 45...Kxc6?

  Gregor Samsa Mendel: <siggemannen>--The Computer thinks that black's 45..Ke5 was best here. Apparently white wins the pawn back after 45..Kxc6 46 Nd4+ Kb7 47 Ne6. The fatal error seems to be 49..Ra7, where The Computer thinks that 49..Rf8 instead might hold.
Oct-21-18  siggemannen: <Gregor Samsa Mendel>Thanks, now i see something :). I was planning to go for 46.Nd4 Kb7, but then white has 47.Ne6 with annoying threats of Rd7 or Rb2 winning the knight or g5-pawn. It's interesting how insecure black king is in the middle of an open board

  kenilworthian: That 53.h4!! is a stunner. But there are still some tricks:

If 53...gxh4+ then 54.Kxh4 Kd6 55.Kxh5 Ke7 56.Kg6!! Ke6 57.f4 Ke7 58.f5 Kf8 59.Kf6 +-

Or if 53...g4 then 54.Kf4 Kd6 55.Kg5 Ke5 56.Kxh5 Kf4 57.Kg6!! Kf3 58.Kg5!! +-
