Kibitzer's Corner
Jan-27-05  DanielBryant: What's the finish?
Jan-27-05  GBKnight: White wins the knight for the f-pawn and captures both black's pawns. Black only has time to capture white's h-pawn, then queens his own g-pawn :

59..Kd6 60 f8=Q Nxf8 61 Kxf8 Ke5 62 Kg7 Kf4 63 Kxh7 Kg3 64 Kh6 Kxh3 65 Kxg5 and wins

  beatgiant: In the final position, White wins the knight for the f-pawn and then wins both Black's pawns. Black can at most win White's h-pawn, but then White queens the g-pawn.

One example is 59...Kd5 60. f8(Q) Nxf8 61. Kxf8 Ke5 62. Kg7 Kf4 63. Kxh7 Kg3 64. Kg6 Kh4 65. Kh6 (zugzwang) Kxh3 66. Kxg5, etc.

Looks like we almost simultaneously posted almost exactly the same ideas.

I'll post one more line for completeness.

59...h6 60. f8(Q) Nxf8 61. Kxf8 Kd6 62. Kg7 Ke7 63. Kxh6 Kf6 64. Kh5 (zugzwang) and White wins the g-pawn next.
