White should been win this pawn ending.
SF shows two way (see below) - promoting 'g'-pawn and breakthough to black's central pawns, queening 'g'-pawn despite on breakthrough of black king to white's 'd'-pawn. Second way happened in the game with small difference - white doesn't prevented promotion of black's 'b'-pawn - <52...b4 53.a3?? b3!> 53.b3! needed.
