  Gypsy: Is there a save for White, however? Black has been closing in for a while and by 53.Ke4? White king steped into a mortal trap.
Dec-18-05  tayer: 55. ♔d4 ♖xc4+ 56. ♔d3 ♖xc5 57. ♖xa3 f6 58. exf6+ ♔xf6. Looks better for white but it may not be enough
Dec-28-13  jerseybob: tayer: In your line, isn't 57..Ke6 better, i.e. 58.Kd4,Rd5+ and if 59.Ke4,Rb5 or 59.Kc4,Kf5
