  gambitfan: Nice endgame...

♖ // ♙+♙

The pawn "queens" into a knight in order to avoid the mate...

  gambitfan: Again, it is not that easy to understand why Black abandon after 58 ♖f8...

What happens if 58... ♘h1 ?

  gambitfan: I answer to myself... ;-)

If 58... ♘h1, then 59 ♖g8!

Then Black are in zugzwang...

Either the King moves : he has only one possibility: the mating square h3!

Or the knight moves: it has 2 possibilities but both lead it into an early grave...

Ths endgame is more refined than it appears at first sight!
