Black needs to chill with 58. ... K-h7! a problem like draw. (he gets a 2nd chance on move 60) It seems white wants his R on h3 with the opposition so after black moves A. ... K-h7 then R-h2 OR B. ... K-f7 then K-f5 followed by K-e4. Both these lines save an important tempo, I think!!! This ending is very interesting in that the N is wayword and winnable and yet there is a pawn to assist. I can't quite get what is going on even with the help of a TB. For example, after 58. ... K-h7! 59. R-c3

Black draws only with K-g8!!
