Black to play - Draw (Instead of FIne's White Wins)

1...Kf7 2.Ke2 Kf6 In the first note, Black can draw 2...Ke6 3.Kd3 b5 4.Ke4 a5 (Instead of Fine's 4...g5? 5.d5+! Kd6 6.b4!) 5.Kxf4 Kd5 6.Kf5 b4 7.cxb4! axb4! 8.Kg6 Kxd4 9.Kxg7 c5 10.f4! Ke4 11.g4! Kxf4 12.Kxh6! c4 13.g5! c3 14.bxc3 bxc3! 15.g6! c2 16.g7! c1Q 17.g8Q! Since Black will draw with ...Kg3 after a queen exchange, he has an easy perpetual check 17...Qc6+ 18.Kh5 Qc5+ 19.Kh4 Qf2+ 20.Kh5! Qc5+ 21.Kh6 Qc6+ 22.Kh7 Qb7+ 23.Kh8 Qb2+= 3.Kd3 Kf5? Even here, 3...Ke6 holds the draw 4.Ke4 g5 5.c4 (since Black hasn't played ...b5, his queenside pawns are still mobile, so unlike 4...g5? in the previous note, here 5.d5+ Kd6 holds no danger) 5...a5 6.b3 c6 7.h4 b5 8.hxg5 hxg5 9.Kd3 Kd6 and neither side can make meaningful progress 4.Kc4 c6 5.d5 cxd5+ 6.Kxd5 Kg5 7.Ke5 Fine gives this a question mark, pointing out the simple win 7.c4 Kh4 8.b4+- However, White is still winning after the text 7...b5 8.b4?? White still wins with 8.b3 a5 9.Kd4! Kh4 10.c4! bxc4 but after the text, Black should win with 8...Kh4 Instead of Fine's 8...g6? which he awards !! 9.Kxf4 a6! 10.Kf5 Kg3! 11.Kg6 Kxg2! 12.Kxg7 Kxh3! 13.Kxh6 Kg3 and Black wins the race back to the queenside
