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

1.Kc6 Fine only considers the crude attempt 1.Rc3 Kd7 2.Rc8 Bf2 3.Ra8 Bg1 4.Rxa7? Bxa7! 5.Kxa7 Kc7= White needs to use the rook and king to squeeze the Black king a bit further away before going after the pawn 1...Bb6 Black can't allow his king to get pushed to the f-file as the following variation illustrates 1...Ke6 2.Rd1 Bf2 3.Rd2 Bg1 4.Re2+ Kf7 5.Kb7 Bd4 6.Kb8 Bg1 7.Re1 Bc5 8.Rc1 Bb6 9.Rb1 Bc5 10.Rb7+ Ke8 11.Rxa7 2.Rb3 Bg1 3.Rb1 Bf2 4.Kd5 Kd7 there are no good squares for the bishop on the diagonal 4...Be3 5.Re1; 4...Bb6 5.Rxb6, but now White can also create mating threats on the back rank 5.Rb7+ Kd8 5...Ke8 6.Ke6 Kd8 7.Rd7+ Kc8 8.Kd6 Bc5+ 9.Kc6 Bb6 10.Rb7 Bd4 11.Rc7+ Kb8 12.Kd7; 5...Kc8 6.Rf7 Bg1 7.Kd6 Bh2+ 8.Kc6 threatens both mate and the pawn 6.Ke6 Bc5 7.Rf7 Bg1 8.Rd7+ Ke8 8...Kc8 9.Kd6 transposes to the note to 5...Ke8 9.Rg7 Bc5 10.Rg8+ Bf8 11.Rh8 and White wins

The Benko edition deletes the position, but keeps the incorrect evaluation Two rook-pawns, however, only draw because White is stalemated after the sacrifice
