Kibitzer's Corner
Jun-02-07  micartouse: It's amazing Black is able to use just his slightly better king position to create a win in this pawn ending, although it should be drawn.

48. Kc2 is the fatal mistake. White needed to play 48. e4 to prevent the ... f5 move. Then as soon as Black moves ... Kb1 White plays b4 and has a better position to draw.

It's hard to know how to deal with the 4P v. 4P formation properly.
