In the last variation in the note to move 4 1...Kf8 2.h4 Ke7 3.Kg2 Kd7 4.h5 g5 5.g4 Kc6 6.f4 Kd5 7.Kf3 Kd4 8.h6 Kd5 White wins with 9.fxg5 Instead of Fine's 9.e3? when Black holds with 9...Kc4 (instead of Fine's 9...gxf4? which just opens a path into Black's position for the White king) 10.fxg5 (10.Ke4 Kc5 11.Kd3 Kd5) 10...Kc5! 11.Kf4 Kd5! 9...Kc6 This is a tougher defense to crack than taking the pawn when White wins in somewhat similar fashion to Fine's main line (which does not have the pawns on h6 and f7) 9...Kxe5 10.Ke3 Kd5 11.Kf4 Kd6 (11...Kd4 12.e4 followed by 13.Ke5) 12.Ke4 Kd7 13.Ke5 Ke7 14.e3 Kf8 15.Kf6 Kg8 16.g6 hxg6 17.h7+ Kxh7 18.Kxf7! 10.Kf4 Kd7 10...Kd5 11.e3 Kc6 12.g6! fxg6 13.Kg5! 11.Ke4!
