hi Peter

thanks for bringing us this video.

A question. What if White moves his king to g5 in the position at video time 15.50? would that not be winning ? since the black backward pawn is pinned the queen can take on g4?

It's a nice plan, but the white king won't get to g5. If white moves his king to f4 or g4, then black plays Bf6. He's still got waiting moves left with Qg8-f8-g8, so he won't be forced to move.

The tablebases say that the final position in the variation with Rc8 Bxf2 Rg8+ Kh6 Kxf5 Lxg3 Rxg4 is a clear win, because the black king cannot reach the drawing corner.
Black could only draw if the king reaches the corner of opposite color of the bishop.

Also at about 26:00 where Peter was unsure how to win a triangulation manouvre should win.
