Black to play - White wins (instead of Fine's Draw)

1...Kf7 2.Kd3 Ke6 instead of Fine's 3.Ke4? White wins with 3.Kc4! Kd6 (3...g5 4.fxg5 fxg5 5.Kd4) 4.Kb5! g5 5.Kc4! g4 6.f5! Kc6 (6...Ke5 7.a4! h5 8.Kd3!) 7.Kd4 Kb5 8.Ke4 3...g6 4.Kd4 Kd6! 5.Kc4 h6? Instead, Black draws by keeping the opposition with 5...Kc6! as after 6.h3 Kd6! 7.Kb5 Black's kingside counterplay is now fast enough with 7...g5 because of the pawn on h3 6.Kd4 Kc6 And again White can win with 7.h3! instead of Fine's 7.Ke4? 7...Kb5 7...Kd6 8.Ke4 Kc5 9.Kf3! f5 (9...Kb5 10.f5!) 10.h4! h5 11.Ke3+- 8.Kd5 g5 9.Ke4! Ka4 10.fxg5 fxg5 11.Kf5! Kxa3 12.Kg6! Kb4 13.Kxh6! and Black does not have ...g4 as he did in the main line where the White pawn was on h2.
