Very instructive. Hard to believe but 62 Kxf5 let the win slip. Instead the counter-intuitive 62 Kd4!! netted the full point, moving the King away from the passed pawn: 62..h3 63 Kd3 Kg2 64 Ke2 h2 65 Rg8+ Kh3 66 Kf2 h1=N+ 67 Kf3 Kh2 68 Rg5 f4 69 Kxf4 Nf2 70 Kf3 Nd3 71 Rd5 Nb4 (71..Ne1+ 72 Kf2 +-) 72 Rd2+ Kg1 73 Rg2+ Kh1 74 Rg4 Nd3 75 Rd4 Ne5+ 76 Kg3 +-
