Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-12-10  xombie: Fascinating endgame. Postmortem, I can suggest some improvements for black such as not playing f5, leads to the fixing of the second weakness on g6. At move 51, black is completely tied up. If the rook moves horizontally there follows b6 (as occurs in the game), if not Rxf2 then Rxg6 finishes.

But then, we may ask what would have happened if f5 had not been played. I don't see the continuation. Is there any way for the king to infiltrate? Consider the position with the king on c6-a possible infiltration idea, then Rc2 Kb7 Rxc8 Bc5 blockades and probably draws. However, perhaps there was some other idea connected with Ke4, f4-f5 etc which somehow seems dicey owing to checks.
