  Mateo: Interesting ending. 49.fxe4? loses quickly. But even the more stubborn 49.f4 should lose. I think the winning plann for Black should be:

The Black Rook goes to e2, tying the White Rook to the defence of the e pawn on the 3rd rank, meanwhile the White King has only 2 squares on that same rank, g3 and h3. Then the Black King goes to d5 threatening to go to c4 and b4, to force the White Rook to give up the 3rd rank. If the White Rook stays on c3, moving with his King to h3, then Rd2-d3 shouls win.
