  Gypsy: <32...Nc7(!)> With knight free again, Black seems to be holding the game.

<35...b4> Bad is 35...Rc5? 36.Rxc5 bxc5 37.a4 ... and White wins.

<43...Rf1?> This is an unfortunate idea which loses the game. It is hard to see how White could make much of a progress had Black played the simple Ke5, Rf6, and g6.

<44.Rxd5!> Black clearly reckoned with 44.Rxb6 Rd2+ only. But the pawn endgame is won for White, and was played beautifully.

<52.g3> First zugzwang.

<56.Kc3!> Triangulation and second zugzwang: if 56...Kb5, then 57.Kb3! Kc6(Ka6) 57.Kc4 ... and as in the game.
