White to Play - Draw (instead of Fine's Black Wins)

1.Qg6+ Kd5 2.Qxa6 e4 3.Qb5+ Kd4 4.Qb6+ Kd3 5.Qa6+ Ke3 6.Qxh6+ Ke2 7.Qh5+ Ke1 Fine writes White is lost despite his extra pawn, but this is only true after the next move. The squares f5 and b1 are key for White to deliver perpetual check, so he should occupy that diagonal with 8.Qf5 (instead of Fine's 8.g4?) Some sample variations 8...e3 9.a4 e2 10.a5 Kd1 10...Qd4 11.a6 Kd2 12.Qa5+ Kd3 13.a7 11.Qb1+! Qc1 12.Qd3+!
