  wwall: 94...Rh3? should lose. White can draw with 94...Rf1.

Instead of 95.Ra2? which should draw, White can win with 95.f5! Ra3 96.h6+Kh7 97.Rf2 Ra5 98.Re2 Re7 99.Re5 Ra2 100.Re7 Kg8 101.f6 Rg2 102.Kf5 Rf2 103.Ke6 Re2 104.Kd7 Rf2 105.Re8 Kh7 106.Ke7 Kg6 107.h7 Re2 108.Kd7 Rd2 109.Kc6 Rc2 110.Kb5 Rb2 111.Kc4 Rc2 112.Kd3 Rh2 113.h8=Q and White wins.

97...Kg8? loses. Black can draw with 97...Kh6.

104.h6? should draw. White wins with 104.Ke6 Re1 105.Re5 Rc1 106.f6 Rc6 107.Kf5 Kh7 108.Re8 Rc5 109.Ke6 Rc6 110.Ke7 Rc1 111.f7 Re1 112.Kf8 Rd1 113.Re6 Rc1 114.Ke7 Rc7 115.Kf6 Rc8 116.Rd6 Kh6 117.Rd5 Ra8 118.Ke7 Ra7 119.Ke8 Ra8 120.Rd8 Rxd8 121.Kxd8 wins for White.
