  Penguincw: As long as white can hang on to the c pawn, it's going to be 1-0.
Dec-25-11  achieve: I could say 54...Kg5 is a blunder, at least it is clear it can only lose immediately, but the defence with 54...Ke6 is quite hard to spot when you don't have experience with this endgame, and overlook/miss that Black holds fine by playing ...d5 & ...e4 as soon as White moves up the h-pawn, which can then be collected by the BK -- not easy, but it's there for sure, see Diagram:

just played 58 h7 Kxh7; 59 Kf5 e4!!

Rapport will remember this endgame.

Dec-27-11  Abdooss: This is what we call "Tiviakov's Close Rapport" !!
Dec-30-11  Shams: <achieve> <I could say 54...Kg5 is a blunder, at least it is clear it can only lose immediately, but the defence with 54...Ke6 is quite hard to spot>

Well, can't we say that a mistake that turns a king and pawn ending from one result to another is by definition a blunder at GM level?

Regardless of that, can you post your line? I can't see how you got from move 54 to move 58. Thanks in advance.
