Kibitzer's Corner
Aug-28-05  Autoreparaturwerkbau: Phew, what an energetic battle ...!
Oct-19-16  clement41: The pawn endgame resulting from 55 Rxd5+ (as often, white gives back some material edge to go into a winning endgame) is reasonably easy to assess.

After 55...Kxd5 forced 56 Kxg2 (56 a6?? f2) white makes the scary g2/e2 pawn dual vanish, 56...Kd4 is black's only practical attempt, but 57 Kf1! aiming for the blockading square e1 is enough. White is in no rush to push his remote passers as they're untouchable thanks to the well-known motif; e.g. in the event of (these are bad moves, just for the example) 56 a6 Kc6 57 b4 Kb6 58 b5 and if ...Kxb5?? 59 a7 obviously

Here 53...Kd4 is too greedy. Black wants to block the rook and promote, but the move loses. Instead 53...e2 draws. 54.Re7 Kd2 55.Kf2 g1=Q+ 56.Kxg1 e1=Q+ 57.Rxe1 Kxe1 and the bishop and king easily stop and kill the a and b pawns.
