44 White to play
Bishops of the same colour

Apr-13-21  cehertan: If 54...Ke7 55.Kxa4 Kf8 some technique is still required due to the wrong-colored rook pawn. White in this case has to let the BK run to the corner and force black to play ...g5 at the wrong moment. 56.Bh7?? trying to prevent the K from hiding is a terrible blunder due to 56...g5! 57. hxg6 with an important theoretical draw— in fact the only drawn position with B+P vs. king aside from the B+ wrong rook pawn combo. Blacks king can’t be flushed out of h8 then without delivering stalemate.
