Black to play - Win

In the first line 1...Kg4 Simpler is Fine's second line 1...Ke4 2.Ke2 g5 3.Kf2 d4 which was the continuation in the game Brinckmann-Rubinstein, Budapest 1929. 2.Kg1 Kg3 3.Kf1 g5 4.Kg1 g4? There was still time for Black to retrace his steps with 4...Kg4! 5.Kf1 Kf5 6.Ke1 Ke5 7.Ke2 Ke4 8.Kf2 d4 5.Kf1! Instead of Fine's 5.Kh1? 5...Kf4 Black even loses if he goes forward 5...Kh2? 6.Kf2! Kh1 7.Kg3! Kg1 with a position reached by Fine in the note to Black's 6th move. White wins the race back to the queenside after 8.Kxg4! 6.Kf2 Ke4 7.Ke2 White has the opposition and Black has run himself out of useful waiting moves. 7...d4 7...g3 8.Kd2 and there is no longer a path for Black to penetrate on the kingside. 8.cxd4! Kxd4! 9.c3+ Ke4 10.g3

Corrected as Position 193 in the revised edition by removing the first variation. However, Benko kept Fine's text before the second line with slight paraphrasing, so the example now begins with the non sequitur Rubinstein chose a less complicated but equally effective line
