70..Ra8 is also no good due to 71 b6+ Kb7 72 Kb5.

Black must side-step the b6+ with 70..Kb7! when White’s only useful move is 71 a5 but then 71..Rc8+ 72 Kb4 Rd8! holds things together:

73 a6+ Ka7! 74 Ka5 Rd6! 75 c5 Rxd5 76 b6+ Kb8 77 Kb5 Rh6 78 a7

78..Ka8! (not falling for the trick 78..Kb7? 79 c6+ +-) 79 Ka6 Rxb6+ =

A very instructive position to show students of the endgame that demonstrates how to hold back connected passed pawns.

  woldsmandriffield: Note also that Deze could have made his task much easier with the intermediate check 64..e3+ 65 Kd3 e2+ 66 Kxe2 Rxg3 67 Bh3 Rg3.

The playing conditions at this tournament were tough, as described in The Art of Bisguier: unusually cold weather, no heating at the venue, participants playing in overcoats, with frequent loss of electricity and, therefore, lighting leading to many adjournments.
