  beenthere240: It might look like 53...Bxb4 and then 54 Kxe4 would win an extra pawn but it would be a disaster. White's pawn on b4 keeps the DSB and forcing the king to take on a3 gives black an extra tempo. very cool ending position.
Jun-06-11  ozmikey: A fascinating ending. The infernal machine suggests White could have held out by 55. Be1!, preventing Black from gobbling both of the king-side pawns for nix (55...Kg2 56. h4). It's still not straightforward after that but White should have enough.
