Only one King move wins, 63 Ka6, going around the rook so as not to disrupt its attack on f6, as occurred in he game after 63 Kb7.

Simplest would be 63 Rb4 holding on to the f pawn and giving the King time enough to get over to the f file.

Tough result for Kamsky, he had Grischuk beaten, but missed the clincher.
