Jul-06-10  Whitehat1963: How is this a win for white?
Premium Chessgames Member
  paulalbert: Let's look at possible variation:
58... Kxf6
59. Kxh6 Kf5
60. Kg7 Ke4
61. Kf6 Kxe3
62. Ke5

White is protecting his d pawn and about to take black's d pawn and win.

61... Kd3
62.Ke5 Kc4
Black's d pawn still lost.

If black K hangs back, going to e6 on 59., then white K goes to g6 and also pushes black K away from his d pawn and elementary win. Paul Albert

Jul-06-10  sfm: Cute last move! The position after 59.Kxf6,Kxh6 is good, old, depressive, genuine zugzwang. Black loses the d-pawn, and the usual defense - playing xx. Kxd5,Kd7 does not work with the extra pawn.
Mar-01-14  Everett: Bronstein goes Karpov and plays it through to the win.
